* Supporting SUPERHEROES in Northfield Schools is a Snap

Accelerate Northfield seeks members of the Northfield community to become volunteer reading and math tutors in the Northfield Public Schools.

Becoming a tutor is as easy as 1, 2, 3 (and 4, in this case). If you have questions about this process or need assistance, contact Accelerate’s coordinator, Michael Garlitz, at mgarlitz@northfieldschools.org.

STEP 1: Fill out the Volunteer Questionnaire.

We use information from this form to set up your volunteer account. Your contact information will remain confidential and we will never send you spam or junk mail. Once this information is received, tutor candidates will be contacted by Accelerate Northfield.

STEP 2: Complete the Volunteer Background Check.

Each year, Northfield Schools requires that volunteers complete a criminal background check and sign a confidentiality acknowledgement. The background check is free of charge to tutor candidates.

Volunteers complete the background check online. Most people receive a link to the forms after completing Accelerate Northfield’s volunteer questionnaire. For those who do not receive the link, here is it: http://www.applitrack.com/nfld/StartForm.aspx?id=-495251393571

Anyone who prefers to complete a written form, contact mgarlitz@northfieldschools.org.

Accelerate Northfield will inform you when your background check is complete and you may begin volunteering.

STEP 3: Complete the Volunteer Orientation.

Once you have submitted your background check, you should complete the Volunteer Orientation.  To complete the orientation, all you have to do is go to the Volunteer Orientation page of our website and watch the videos there by clicking on the links.  The orientation is a series of short videos that cover many topics, including how to enter the school building, volunteer expectations, and managing student behavior.  Before volunteering, you are encouraged to watch the orientation videos covering Volunteer Expectations and Mandated Reporting & Bullying.

Step 4: Sign up for a Tutoring Opportunity.

Once your background check has cleared, Accelerate will contact you with instructions on how to view and navigate our online volunteer sign up system.  Once you have found a tutoring opportunity that is right for you, all you have to do is sign up and you’re on your way to helping mold a learning superhero!
