Volunteer Services provide academic tutors, as available, for students who need additional support. Academic tutors are available for elementary, middle, and high school students supporting reading, math, writing, and science. A referral is required from a teacher, counselor, or administrator.
Academic tutors must have a contact person at each school who will assist with tutoring logistics at the school and who will be available for indirect supervision during the tutoring.
All volunteers provided through Volunteer Services have been screened, cleared for volunteering with students and trained when available. Any Volunteer Services referred tutor that is not acceptable due to ability, dependability or conduct can be referred back to Volunteer Services for dismissal.

E.L. Cord Foundation
Center for Learning and Literacy
The E. L. Cord Foundation Center for Learning and Literacy focuses on tutoring elementary children from kindergarten to the eighth grade. We offer two reading programs throughout the academic year and one summer program. The clinic tutoring program is based in the Center; while the Reading Buddies program is based in local area schools. Both tutoring programs are taught by UNR undergraduate students and supervised by UNR faculty.
Mendive Grief Group Starting Tuesday, September 17th
Posted by Jeremy Elsmore on 9/3/2019
This year us counselors will run a support group for students. The purpose of the group is to help meet the needs of students who are grieving the loss of a loved one (does not have to be recent), death, parent incarceration, divorce, deportation, abuse, cancer, illness, and other losses in their life. Grief support can help children and teens understand the feelings and changes brought about by a loss. Studies suggest that extra support following a loss can often help students function better at home and at school. In addition, a grief group provides a special time and place for healing and a chance to meet others that are living with loss. The sessions will be educational, fun, and appropriate for your child’s age.
The group will meet approximately two times per month during your child’s Enrichment class. The first group will begin on Tuesday Sept. 10th. Your student will receive a pass on the day of the group and will be excused from their class. All students attending will be expected to keep up with their school work from enrichment. .
Please feel free to contact your child’s counselor for more information at 353-5990.
