Interested in Tutoring and Mentoring? Looking for Leadership Experience?

Join the Glendale Learning Program Board of Directors!

If you are interested in getting a jump start on leadership experience here at UCLA, GLP might be the organization for you! We are open to all majors, class levels and overall interests so anyone and everyone is welcome to apply to have a board position or join as a general member as well! If you have a passion for education as we all do, join as a GLP Board Director today!   

GLP’s mission is to empower its students through tutoring and mentorship so that they not only gain the confidence to succeed academically but develop a life-long love for learning. Volunteers work with students grades 6th to 8th to help them complete their school work, review any challenging subjects, and reinforce key concepts. We guide our students through a 30-minute activity that exposes them to topics in health, STEM, and personal growth and development in addition to the individual help. Tutoring currently takes place virtually on select Saturdays from 10:30am-11:50am, however as the pandemic situation changes, we will make adjustments accordingly and we hope to transition back to in-person tutoring once again. In the case of in-person tutoring, dates are susceptible to change starting next fall, but transportation and other accommodations will be provided for volunteers. It is not mandatory to be available for every site day, so there is always room for flexibility around your individual schedules! For director positions, we have multiple positions open, varying in interest and time commitment. The application below has a complete list of what each entails!

IMPORTANT NOTE: 

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to adjust our usual program and are currently holding tutoring site days online for the safety of our members and students. However, we have been monitoring the situation and plan to start transitioning back to “in-person” tutoring this upcoming year. Though we are living in uncertain times, we remain excited and hopeful for another year of fulfilling our goal as mentors.
