Your support has helped make the EVkids Tutoring Program uniquely long-term, comprehensive, and relationship-based: we recruit, train, and match EVcorps volunteers with children and teens from Boston’s inner city in multi-year tutoring and mentoring relationships.
The EVkids tutor-tutee relationship is closely supported by EVkids staff, who provide professional School Advocacy (school visits, intervention, referrals and support for school transfers, college preparation and enrichment), and Family Advocacy (home visits, parenting support, crisis intervention).
I would have never made it this far without EVkids. I walked in a shy sixth grader, and I am now a confident senior ready to enter college.”– Barbara Austin, EVkid ’10. Barbara went on to Framingham State University.
In SY14-15, EVkids averaged a 1.3 grade-year improvement in math computation as measured by the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) (where .9 = one year/grade growth). Over the last eight years, 100% of EVkid seniors have graduated on time and gone on to college as first generation college attendees. Your support makes it all possible.
