The EVkids Tutoring Program is uniquely long-term, comprehensive, and relationship-based: we recruit, train, and match tutor 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 and family advocacy in the form of school visits, intervention, referrals and support for school transfers, college preparation, home visits, parenting support, and 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, EVkids tutee ’10. Barbara went on to attend Framingham State University.

Since 2007, 100% of EVkids seniors have graduated on time and gone on to college as first generation college attendees.
