EVkids empowers inner-city Boston youth with the skills and confidence needed to realize their potential. Two programs, EVkids Tutoring and EVkids Camp, help low-income, academically vulnerable children and teens (grades 4-12) succeed in school and life by systematically strengthening core academic skills, organizational habits, and other life skills.
Since 2007, 100% of our high school seniors have graduated on time and gone on to college. We accomplish this by recruiting and training a motivated volunteer EVcorps of university students who provide one-on-one, multi-year, after-school tutoring and mentoring, closely supported by professional staff who provide family engagement and school advocacy.
By building a caring community of support, where success is expected and achievable together, we believe our EVkids and their EVcorps tutors will become integral parts of a more socially just, tolerant, and compassionate world.
