I'm now semi-retired after a career teaching physics (and occasionally math) at a community college, and am looking for opportunities to volunteer with disadvantaged youth. During my college career, I organized and ran a walk-in tutoring center for the physics department, with a combination of faculty and students as tutors. Doing this on a volunteer basis at a high school seems like it would be an effective use of my skills and enjoyable to do.
Compared to the community college program I supervised, it seems like what I'm trying to do now would be much less work for a high school to support, since it wouldn't require funding or space. (During COVID, this would be over zoom.) I'm treating this as a real job search, and have worked up a resume and job letter, and lined up references. I've researched high schools in my area to find ones that have a lot of students qualifying for free lunches, and have made attempts to establish contact, although so far I have not had any immediate nibbles.
I suspect a barrier here is that most high schools do not have any preexisting setup of this kind, so it's not like volunteering for an organization that already has $n$ volunteers and can just plug in volunteer $n+1$. Can anyone describe a successful program of this type at a high school in the US that they're familiar with? I'm interested in things like where the tutoring happens physically (in non-COVID times), who hires and supervises tutors (assistant principal? department head?), and how students are made aware of the availability of tutoring (maybe by their teachers, with announcements via the Schoology courseware?).
