El Buen Pastor Latino Community Services
Saturday, May 18, 2013
The youth tutoring program is an after school program for Latino students in grades 6-12 providing assistance with homework assignments, helping students master basic skills, learn problem-solving techniques and good study habits, and encouraging students to place a high priority on their academics. We seek to provide academic support, enrichment, and encouragement that will lead students to achieve and maintain academic success, culminating in graduation from high school and a desire for lifelong learning. Volunteers work with one or more students. Students are expected to be engaged the full hour in completing homework and projects, reading or other enrichment activities.
The program meets Monday through Thursdays beginning the week after Labor Day through the middle of May. Middle school tutoring and homework help from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. High school tutoring and homework help from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. The program follows the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County public school inclement weather policy. We also offer summer enrichment for our teens from June to August- the specific schedule is on our Calendar.
