In addition to one-on-one, in-school mentoring, AOK supports students in a variety of settings allowing for flexibility for volunteer mentor/tutors and participating schools.
Some AOK volunteers assist teachers in the classroom at various schools, making sure to help the teachers and all their students succeed.
TEACHERS AND SCHOOL STAFF: If you need this kind of support, please contact AOK at firstname.lastname@example.org
Afternoon Zoom Meetings
AOK volunteers meet with their mentees on Zoom which allows those who work to still be part of AOK, and those students who have busy school days to still participate. Zoom mentoring is also one of the only opportunities for mentees and mentors to continue meeting through summer. From 2023-2024, the Zoom mentoring program is supported and advertised by the Howard County government as part of the YEP! grant funding.
