Our unique program pairs grade level students with mentors who are attending local colleges. Through these workshops participants learn study skills, time management and how to access financial aid. Tutoring services help youth to improve their academic standing and attain the skills they need to succeed in college. The Tutoring & Study Center provides tutoring, workshops, and academic assistance. We provide academic tutors for students in local schools who are seeking to improve in their courses. We collaborate with the Deans and Faculty of the schools and colleges to find the best graduate and undergraduate tutors. Those tutors are trained to work effectively with individual students and in small groups. For more information, please write us at Blocks@youthy.org
