SMART is a wonderful organization that awards high-achieving students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to attend excellent San Francisco private schools. The program then supports the student all the way through their journey with the help of mentors and tutors. Personally, I’m just entering my second year as a volunteer tutor with SMART and couldn’t be more excited about the coming school year. SMART does a wonderful job pairing volunteers with their student based on a number of criteria from academic needs to temperament. Having established a great relationship with my “tutee” last school year, I look forward to being more and more successful as we both grow individually and together. Great volunteer experience! Great program!
