BENEFITING: CHRIS CANTY FOUNDATION
This READING BUDDIES fundraiser will create an after school tutoring program, with a focus on closing the achievement gap in literacy and mathematics. With the requested funding, the Chris Canty Foundation would like to create tutoring services provided to the students in elementary schools. The Foundation will certified teachers, volunteer tutors, and purchase an online educational software. The program will offer tutoring to provide support to participants in their efforts to achieve educational goals. We have connected with Volunteer Local, and graduate students to obtain volunteer tutors to support teachers in their efforts for small group instruction. Tutor services include meeting with a tutor to receive extra help individually or within a group and working independently on interactive educational software.
All participating students will receive a minimum of 6 hours per week of tutoring services. Students will be assigned to tutors by the certified teachers.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
The Chris Canty Foundation
