If you’re interested in tutoring, leading a workshop, or partnering with MOI in any way, please attend a new volunteer orientation. All volunteers are required to attend orientation before working with students. Upcoming orientation dates can be found on our calendar. 

Tutor qualifications include:

  • Willingness to learn along with students

  • Responsiveness to students' changing needs

  • Desire to share personal experiences and inspiration

  • Cultural sensitivity

  • Patience of a manager, persistence of a groupie

Time commitment:

  • 1-2 hours per week, including drive time


  • MOI needs volunteers at our headquarters at 1915 E. 22nd St., Minneapolis. 

  • Volunteers are also invited to work with students at our Writers' Room at South High School. 

MOI supports tutors with:

  • Tutor training, so you know what to expect when working with students

  • Content support, so they can brush up on algebra (Lest they be rusty!)

  • Ongoing opportunities for reflection, so you can discuss how sessions are going
