The Petey Greene Program recruits, trains, and coordinates undergraduate and graduate students and community member volunteers to serve as tutors and Teaching Assistants for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people in NYC. We have been active in New York since 2014.
The Petey Greene Program is looking for tutors to assist incarcerated learners in Rikers Island and in other correctional facilities in NYC.
Tutors will be supporting incarcerated learners in a wide range of educational programming including but not limited to, English Language Learning (combination of ESOL and literacy), GED preparation, Peer tutor Training, and College Courses. Volunteers must be willing to travel to the facility at least once a week for tutoring for at least six months (federal holidays and personal vacation count as excused absences). Clearance is needed due to COVID19 guidelines and facility policies. Clearance includes completing the Department of Corrections application and providing supporting documentation, including proof of vaccination. The Petey Greene Program will provide you with all the information you need to gain clearance, following a successful application and interview process.
Tutoring takes place on weekdays between 9am-8pm, but most of the sessions are in the mornings or early afternoons.
Tutors need to complete a Petey Greene volunteer application through the Petey Greene website at https://www.peteygreene.org/new-york.
Please send a follow-up email to Matt Wilson at email@example.com so we can confirm that we have your application and schedule an interview with you. “
