Teacher Helping a student to read

Make a difference in just one hour per week!

Through the TREK program, Bright Futures Joplin can continue to strengthen our children's educational foundations with the tools they need to meet their full potential, surrounded by people whose support they can trust.

TREK facilitates after-school tutoring services by matching excited volunteers with kids in need of a little extra help in one or more classroom subjects. We are looking for people to share one-on-one time with a child once a week for one hour. By meeting with the same student each week, volunteers build a personal relationship of encouragement and support, while sharing in the child's learning process.

TREK has helped make brighter futures possible for so many of our students. Sign up today to be a part of the TREK legacy.

Because TREK volunteers qualify under Missouri State Law as Screened Volunteers, background checks are required. Click here to learn more about or to begin the background screening process.
