Academic Support

10,000 Degrees Academic Support matches volunteer tutors with low income students in Marin County public schools.

Established in 1997 as Marin County School Volunteers, the organization began with 40 volunteers in five Marin County public schools. 10,000 Degrees Academic Support now has 300+ volunteers serving 5,000+ students in 26 Marin County schools providing academic tutoring, classroom support, and homework assistance.

At 10,000 Degrees, we believe every student deserves the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and positively impact their communities. In conjunction with our college access and college success programming, Academic Support helps students from low-income backgrounds get the assistance and encouragement they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

Become a Volunteer

We match volunteer tutors with public school students in on-campus academic programs during the school day and after school. We provide orientations and trainings to assist new volunteers and ongoing workshops for experienced tutors.

Note: High school volunteers must be in 11th or 12th grade and are used only in certain on-campus, afterschool programs.

Teacher Requests

We place volunteer tutors primarily in 4 Marin County public school districts – Novato, Sausalito Marin City, San Rafael and Shoreline. We specifically support students who come from low-income backgrounds, including English Language Learners. If students in your classroom meet these criteria, make your request using our online form. Please be specific so we can best support your needs!
