I possess substantial experience with this type of arrangement in a university environment if you want to talk off of the listserv. For a community college, obviously there are additional challenges. I wish I could recall for which school(s) (perhaps they will reply to your post) I attended a presentation at a conference two or three years ago in which the presenters from a community college talked about bringing in graduate students from a local university in a graduate assistantship role to provide some of these services.
While it isn’t this school, I know that Clemson pairs up with a local community college in a number of tutoring situations. You may want to contact them for more information.

I’m interested in hearing from any community colleges out there – do you have student leadership positions within your tutoring programs? Specifically, we’re wanting to hire experienced tutors to mentor new tutors, assist with tutor recruitment, and generally help inform our program growth and development. However, there are challenges to adopting this model in a community college setting (our tutors are often only with us for a few quarters, for example).
If anyone has had experience in this area, or has advice to share, I’d love to hear it!
