What is Seeds of Success?

Seeds of Success is an enriching volunteer program dedicated to providing free tutoring services to K-12 students within the community. Our passionate tutors, who are current BYU students, generously take time away from their own studies to offer personalized academic support and mentorship. Through this program, we aim to foster a love for learning and help students overcome educational challenges, enhancing their confidence and academic performance. Our tutors are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of young learners, offering guidance in various subjects and creating a supportive environment for growth. We are excited to bring this valuable service to our community and look forward to helping students achieve their full potential through the Seeds of Success program.

How do I get involved?

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Volunteer Description: Volunteers will meet with K-12 students and provide tutoring services.

Volunteer Commitment: Volunteers commit to at least one semester of service.

Step 1:

Register as a volunteer by filling out the Tutor Registration Form.

Step 2:

Reach out to us via our email expressing interest in tutoring, and 1 of our Program Directors or the Executive Director will get back to you with further details and steps!

Step 3:

Complete this required 25-minute training: Minor Protection Training. We have compiled a playlist of YouTube training videos that detail effective tutoring techniques.

Let us know if you have any questions! We really do love to help and will do all we can to make tutoring a positive experience for you! Feel free to stop by and talk to us during our office hours. You are always more than welcome to contact us anytime at the phone numbers listed under 'Contact Us' or at seedsofsuccess@byu.edu.

FOR PARENTS

To begin tutoring, we need you to do two things:

Step 1:

Fill out the Parent Release Form. You will need to print and sign it. We cannot accept electronic signatures. Feel free to bring this in by hand to our office or mail it to the address indicated. You may also scan it (take a picture) and email it back to us.

Step 2:

Complete this Student Registration Form. This contains the pertinent information that our tutors will receive. Once we receive both forms, we can find a tutor for your child.

BECOME A LEADER

Volunteer Leader Description: There are two kinds of leadership positions: Executive Director and Program Director. A program only has one Executive Director, but multiple program directors. Leaders are generally responsible for overseeing recruitment, retention, and reflection with volunteers. They also coordinate service with community partners and ensure their program runs smoothly. Volunteer leaders may also share the responsibilities of volunteers as outlined in the Volunteer Description. For more information, visit our section called Be a Leader!

Volunteer Leader Commitment: In addition to volunteering, Volunteer leaders commit to a 1-hour monthly team meeting to discuss needs and make plans for the program.

STEP 1:

Apply to become a leader by completing one of the applications below (if there are no applications, then this program is not accepting leaders at this time):
