Don't leave me hanging!!

Are you ready to leave our program? When the time comes to say goodbye, please let us know. Please. If you vanish without a word, we have no way to know what's going on or when or why you stopped tutoring. All it takes is a simple phone call or quick email to say you won't be continuing with your student.

When volunteers leave without the courtesy of letting us know, it makes us conclude that the program was so insignifcant and of so little value that it wan't worth your time to let us know you were moving on. It also implies that you didn't take into account your student's chance to get a new teacher. When you leave without any notice, it can take months before we can rectify the situation for the student.

Please be considerate and give a heads up when your time has come to leave the program. It's the right thing to do.
