The K-12 Smart Valley Resource Center Contacts

The K-12 Smart Valley Resource Center aims to provide the children of the Central Valley, California area (Pre-K to 12th grade), with educational and counseling resources to best meet their needs. These needs might be for tutors (both professional and peer tutors) or a variety of counselors within all different areas (such as family counseling, guidance and career counseling, mental health counseling, and educational counseling).

Join Our Team

We're always looking for new members to our team who are dedicated to helping youth either through education or counseling. Professional tutors and counselors should have experience in the field they choose to focus on here at Smart Valley, but peer volunteers can sign up with us without any experience whatsoever.

If you are a college student in the Education or Psychology fields and sign up as a volunteer either as a tutor or a counselor, you have the opportunity to earn college credits as an internship in your field.

If this interests you, contact us at and include JOIN THE SMART VALLEY TEAM in your subject line so we can respond to you as quickly as we can.

Sign Up With Smart Valley

The K-12 Smart Valley Resource Center is open to anybody who needs its services. We're lucky enough to have grants that cover our operations as well as wonderful benefactors who believe in our message for promoting the future of our youth.

However, because we only have so many counselors and tutors, if you are looking for one on one attention, it's beneficial to sign up for a time slot so everybody has the opportunity to get the help they deserve.

To sign up for a time slot reach out to us via our email and include SIGN UP TIME in your subject line. In the body of your email, please let us know what times you have available and the specific services you're looking for.

For many of our staff, once you've made a connection with them they will give you a phone number or personal email to reach out to them through, but if you're new to our center, email is the fastest and most effective way to get in contact with us.

Smart Valley also offers a robust pen pal program. If you would like to sign up your child or a child you know, reach out to us via our email with PEN PAL PROGRAM in the subject line.
