Children on the rise: Empowering Oakland Children to Overcome COVID-Related Lost Learning Time. Children Rising is seeking volunteer reading and math tutors to support elementary students in Oakland-area schools for the 2022-2023 school year. No experience is necessary; we provide training and teaching materials. Our tutors work one-on-one with lower level students in reading and math. The time commitment is 2 hours per week during school hours as part of a supported team of on-site tutors. Learn more.
