Make a Difference in a Child’s Life and Future Volunteer

At Higher Academia, volunteers are the lifeblood of our success. Tutoring, mentoring, training, and encouraging are all avenues of influencing our students. By building relationships with the students, we can change the trajectory of their lives and greatly impact their academic and career success – and have fun doing it!
