Tutor at Atchison Elementary School

Student Volunteers

Every year, Benedictine College students volunteer as tutors at Atchison Elementary School. Volunteers may pick which grade to help with based on their availability.

Students interested in volunteering can fill out the form here. After you have signed up, you must contact Dana Hare, secretary at Atchison Elementary School, at 913.367.1161. You must start the process by calling Dana. We do not have enough personnel to contact everyone who signs up, so do not expect someone to call you.


Students may volunteer for more than one slot per day. Tutoring times are available Monday – Friday, starting at 9:00 a.m.

Please review the tutor schedule before calling to sign up.
