For eight years running, Tutors for All programs have achieved jaw-dropping results for Boston kids and the organizations that serve them.
How have our programs accomplished this? While each program in our history has its own unique story, we believe that seven key elements unite them and offer a roadmap to follow.
Over the next few months, we’ll be spending some time discussing each of them. Our goal: a conversation among experts and beginners on how effective programs can work.
Today’s topic: High Quality Oversight.
Starting this summer Tutors for All will be running summer camp and after school programs at YMCA locations across Boston.
T4A will serve elementary school students attending YMCA summer camp and after school programs. This first of these programs will begin at the Roxbury YMCA this July. In the fall we will conduct our first after school program at the East Boston YMCA. We look forward to expanding our outreach to Boston youth through the YMCA. Check back for updates throughout the year!
What is Tutors for All? Hear what students have to say about their tutors and learn how YOU can help close the achievement gap.
Over the years, T4A has had dramatic results on the students we’ve reached. Below are the MCAS results from our 2012 programs:
Here’s what our kids are facing and how we make a difference:
Fewer than 2 in 10 public school ninth-graders will graduate with a post-secondary degree.
Tutors for All bridges the achievement gap one student at a time. Through bringing together colleges, schools, and community resources, we offer underserved students the systematic individualized instruction they need in order to thrive.
Our programs transform the lives of Boston youth and the college students who tutor them. In the process, they are establishing large-scale individualized instruction as one of very few educational interventions successfully preparing underserved students for success in college and beyond.
