At Our Tenderloin After-School Program

tasp students

If you have a few hours during the week and want to inspire young minds, then volunteering at TNDC’s After-School Program (TASP) is for you! The Center serves youth between the ages of 5 and 18 years old and is a safe, supportive space for kids. TASP offers a range of free educational, cultural, artistic, and physical activities. The program is especially eager to enlist volunteers who have strong academic skills to provide tutoring in all subjects—like reading, math, science, and history.

Please note that volunteers must make a minimum six month commitment and work between 4-6 hours every month. A background check is also required.

TASP Hours

Monday – Friday: 1pm – 6pm
Tuesday, Wednesday: 6pm – 8pm (teen homework sessions)
Saturday: 10am – 5pm

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Occasionally we have other volunteer opportunities available, such as working in our administrative offices, running a food or supplies drive, hosting a fundraising event at your company, or supporting one of the community events for our residents.
