Stand Up For Equity in Education

We depend on the help of people like you, who are generous with their time and talent, to help protect the rights of students. There are many ways to contribute and make change happen!

Volunteer to Tutor (In-Person and Virtual)

Contribute one-on-one support to our clients who are in need of and seeking additional academic support in specific classes or subject areas. The majority of our tutors are currently virtual, due to the pandemic. Tutors are matched with students based on grade level and subject area. Hours and schedule vary, depending on the needs of the student and availability of the tutor, but we estimate about 1-2 hours per week per student. Specific hours are determined between the tutor and student. During the school year, they tend to be in the afternoons (sometimes weekends), and during the summer, they tend to be more flexible, especially for students who are in credit recovery). There are times when tutors are matched with students and are actively tutoring, and there may be other times where a tutor is available, but in between students, due to changes in student needs or subjects. Email Tina for more information.

Join Our Action Network!

Join Student Advocacy Center (SAC) and organizations across Michigan to build a network of education justice activists to revolutionize our education system in Michigan. We all know the problems: lack of equitable funding, racism, arbitrary school discipline and suspensions, crowded classrooms, teaching to tests that set up our kids to fail, and on and on. It’s going to take all of us working together to forge a new path for our youth and schools in Michigan.

We ask you to join us today in standing up for healthy and healing schools! We ask you to be ready for urgent calls to action. We ask you to talk with your neighbors and family and ask them to sign up. We ask you to get active in your community’s schools. We ask you to speak out at school board meetings. We ask you to tell your story and demand accountability from our elected leaders.
