What is TOPS?

TOPS (Tutor Outreach in Provo Schools) provides classroom aides for elementary and middle schools in the Provo School District. There are multiple subjects to choose to help with, including reading, math, robotics, and Chinese immersion. Volunteers commit to serve during the same hour each week.

How do I get involved?

Fill out the survey found here. Once that is completed you will receive an email from the TOPS team with the next steps, including a Google Sheet that lists all school needs.

Volunteer Commitment:

You choose the day, time, and classroom in which you serve. You will volunteer at the same time for one hour each week for one semester. If you have your own transportation you are encouraged to sign up for schools that are farther away from campus or carpool with other friends and volunteers.


Please review this orientation before volunteering! You will be asked to sign this form when you arrive at the schools. Please review it before arriving.

Please email the program directors at if you have any questions

Please complete this mandatory 20 minute child protection training before you begin working with the children.
