NEW HAVEN TUTORING INITIATIVE 2023
Reading and math are skills that are essential to children's success in education, future careers and life. To ensure that children who face academic challenges have the opportunity to get the focused attention and guidance they need as they navigate their education, the New Haven Tutoring Initiative was created.
The Tutoring Initiative will launch a pilot program in the summer of 2023, and there will be an official launch for the academic school year in the fall of 2023. The Tutoring Initiative will have three strategic focus areas:
1. After School & Summer Programming: Implement high quality literacy and math enrichment and tutoring, based on scientifically proven instruction methods, through after school and summer programs.
2. Community Engagement: Build a culture of commitment to literacy and math across our city through broad community engagement and a powerful communication initiative. Use these tools to recruit volunteers and facilitate literacy and math focused events engaging civic organizations, academic institutions, libraries, the business community, older students, seniors, faith institutions, arts organizations, and other partners.
3. Parents & Families: Supply parents with information, training, and materials to support them in providing literacy and math activities for their children at home. This will be inclusive of those for whom English is not their first language.
Partnership includes: City of New Haven / New Haven Boys & Girls Club / Horizons @ The Foote School / Inspired Communities Inc. / LEAP / New Haven Counts / New Haven Reads / New Hytes / United Way of Greater New Haven
