Volunteer With Brilliant Detroit

Make a difference from the comfort of your own home.

Are you ready to help a student become a lifelong reader and learner? Reading Partners, in partnership with Brilliant Detroit, is seeking online volunteer tutors to provide high-quality virtual learning opportunities to young students in Detroit. 

You can make a measurable impact from anywhere in the US by giving just one hour per week of virtual literacy support to help a student advance their skills. No experience is required, as we provide volunteers with a structured curriculum, training, and ongoing support to help you and your student succeed. 

Volunteer requirements:

  • Time commitment: Meet with your student for one hour each week. Tutoring takes place remotely, Monday through Thursday from 4-6 pm.
  • Technology: Must have access to a laptop or desktop computer with reliable wifi.
  • Training: Complete the required 1.5 hour tutor orientation.
  • Screening: Volunteers 18 years or older must pass a background check.
