How To Get Involved with Smart Valley
We're always looking for volunteers to become a peer tutor for us! You don't have to be the best of the best in a certain field of study, but we are looking for dedicated individuals who have a passion for learning and teaching kids of all ages to be the best that they can be.
The best way to officially apply to join our team is to check out our Contact Us page and read the rules for submitting an application. We do our best to reply to each query in a timely manner.
Our goal is to never ask parents to pay for anything outside of their means. There are so many things that are out of our control, but having all the tools for success shouldn't be one of them so we rely on grants and donations to pay for our staff and our building. We appreciate any and all donations we receive to keep our program running so we can help as many people as possible. If you are interested in donating, please contact Jamie Murray, our Office Administrator for more details.
Pen Pal Program
Who said the written word is dead? Not us! One of the fun and optional activities we like to try with our elementary aged kids is a pen pal program! Having a pen pal is a great way to practice handwriting, penmanship, letter writing skills, and English comprehension and over the years we've created a detailed and fun program that has reached past California's boundaries! If you are interested in signing up your child for our pen pal program, send us an email and we'll help you get started!
The goal of Smart Valley is to help families in any way that we can, but sometimes the best we can do is point you to other centers, organizations, and communities that can help you and your family. Of course if there are any questions you may have or if you need any help when it comes to contacting other places, our counselors are always available to help you with anything you may need.
