Help Close the Virtual Gap
Quick Overview: Help ensure that ALL kids have access to the academic and social capital necessary to succeed! Take the first step in becoming an online tutor for 5th and 6th grade students who don't have the benefit of paid tutoring.
Mission: Step Up Tutoring’s mission is to innovate and scale free online tutoring for families who cannot afford private tutoring. Amidst the uncertainty and isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our volunteer tutors provide mentorship and emotional support for students. Our goal is to increase engagement, improve academic performance, and strengthen students’ social safety net.
Impact: Students who fall behind often never catch up. This training will start you on the road to offering free tutoring for some of our most vulnerable students who are being left behind in the new remote learning environment. With your help we can fight to close the virtual digital achievement gap.
