VIBES (Volunteers in Bellevue's Education System) is an in-school volunteer mentoring and tutoring program with Bellevue School District (K-12). VIBES recruits mentors and tutors to help students and classrooms that have been identified as needing extra support, so that all BSD students can succeed in college, career and life.

Description:
VIBES is a highly successful, in-school volunteer program, supporting students of all needs. VIBES places volunteers in schools as one-on-one mentors, tutors and classroom volunteers. These opportunities are available in all elementary, middle and high schools in the Bellevue School District. Placements are made based on the volunteer's interest and experience, location preference and time availability. Volunteers commit to one hour per week during the school day for the duration of the school year.

History:
This award-winning 22-year program is a collaborative effort between Bellevue School District, City of Bellevue, and Bellevue Schools Foundation. Each year VIBES places over 400 volunteers from all walks of life - retirees, working professionals, parents, and college and high school students. In the 10/11 school year, we had 98 volunteers who had been volunteering with VIBES for over 5 years.
