Volunteer of the Week

Chris Geary
Partners for Youth Opportunities 

Duke University's decision to accept Chris Geary as an undergraduate turned out to be a great gift to the Durham community. As a volunteer for Partners for Youth, Chris has gone far past the required commitment of three hours a week spent tutoring struggling students who want to go to college. He not only tutored his student, but also helped him take the ACT, successfully apply to NCCU, and navigate the transition from high school to college.

Chris's patience, intelligence and ability to connect with students make him a model tutor. What's more, Chris helped with tutor recruitment and fundraising and has written about his experience in the Partners for Youth newsletter. He's also brought his fraternity on board, creating a service learning/social day to give PYF students access to the university and to a large group of mentors.

Chris is a senior Public Policy major at Duke University. Thank you, Chris Geary, for using your skills to help others succeed.
