Riverways Education Partnerships


We are going back to schools!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic our partner sites have a varied number of in-person and virtual positions. We would love to have you join the team! If you are interested in volunteering please email riverways@uw.edu.

Riverways will be accepting Volunteers until 10/18/2021

Riverways Volunteer Basics

Tutor in a K-12 classroom or community organization for at least 2-3 hours per week for 2 quarters or more! Follow the steps below:

STEP 1 RSVP and attend an upcoming Orientation through Riverways EXPO. Click on the red button to “Sign in” with your UW NetID. Orientation availability and schedules are listed after you create your account. Click on the orientation date you wish to attend to confirm the location. Please arrive on time, as late attendees will be asked to attend another orientation. The following are the available orientation options for Autumn Quarter:

1) Virtual Tutor Orientation: Friday, October 8th,1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
2) In-Person Tutor Orientation: Wednesday, October 13th, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
3) Asynchronous Orientation

If you don’t see an orientation that fits your schedule, please email us at riverways@uw.edu. If you are enrolled in an EDUC 401 Riverways seminar, your orientation will be on the first day of class and you do not need to sign up for an orientation ahead of time. However, all Riverways tutors are welcome to attend an Orientation.

STEP 2 Search tutor positions and identify the schools that fit your schedule and interests through Riverways EXPO.  

Do you want to tutor with Riverways through an academic class? If so, go to our Riverways Seminar page. If you are still interested in tutoring with Riverways, we encourage you to register for one of our EDUC 401 seminars! These seminars can be taken for 1-6 credits, and count toward your I&S requirement. Note that the number of tutoring hours will vary with the number of credits you register for. Please see the page linked above for further details.
