Individual Volunteering

Tenderloin After-School Program

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! TASP serves youth between the ages of 7-18 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, including reading, math, science, and history.

*Please note that volunteers must make a minimum six-month commitment and volunteer between 4-6 hours every month. A background check and clear TB test is required.

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

Please contact Denise Obrero, our TASP Program Manager, to get started with becoming a TASP volunteer.
