Volunteer Impact Opportunities

The Volunteer Impact Partnership (VIP) is a partnership between United Way, local school districts and the Central Kentucky community. VIP works to pair volunteers with local students who are struggling academically with a focus on schools in our region that are classified as “needs improvement” based on KPREP test scores.

The goal of VIP is to provide a consistent, stable relationship with a child or group of children in order to help them advance academically.  Our goal is to match a student with a tutor/mentor who will agree to meet with the student for one hour or more each week throughout the school year.  We are looking to pair a student with a tutor to ensure consistency - allowing for a strong bond to be developed which can help a child succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.  We will attempt to match participating students with a tutor/mentor who has academic strengths or experiences where the student is struggling most.
