How to Sign Up for Volunteer Opportunities

You have jumped most of the hurdles in becoming a math or reading tutor with ACCELERATE NORTHFIELD. In front of you the finish line, signing up for an opportunity to support Northfield’s LEARNING SUPERHEROES!

After passing the criminal background check, you will receive your login information for our matching site, as well as for instructions for signing in. Those instructions also appear below.

A video explaining this process can be found the VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION/TRAINING page.


Go to Accelerate Northfield’s MATCHING WEBSITE. Log in to the website with your username and password, which was sent to you in an email from Accelerate Northfield. If you cannot locate that information, EMAIL ACCELERATE.


Once you have logged in, you will see a screen (pictured below) with a list of available — or currently unfilled — tutoring opportunities. You can filter or sort the list by clicking on any of the column headings (in red box).


Select a tutoring opportunity you would like to sign up for. You can select multiple opportunities at a time. Simply select the opportunity (or two) by checking the boxes next to all the opportunities you wish to sign up for, as pictured below.

Once you have selected the opportunity(s) you wish to sign up for, scroll to the bottom of the screen, and hit the “Save Changes” button (pictured below).


After clicking the “Save Changes” button, you will be brought to a confirmation screen (see below). Please double check to make sure everything is correct, and then click “Confirm” (red box below). Or, if you would like to change something, click the “Cancel” button.


After clicking the confirm button, you will be brought back to the opportunities screen. Now, the opportunities you have signed up for will appear at the top of the list and will have the checkbox filled (see red box).


You are asked to contact the teacher for whom will be volunteering. Please provide the teacher with contact information, then ask any questions you have and confirm what date you should start.

If you do end up needing to cancel your tutoring session, please do so as soon as possible and be sure to communicate with the teacher to let she or he know you canceled.
