One Day of Afterschool Tutoring for 200 Kids

A microproject by City Year Inc.

Summary

Marcus and his team begin their service before the first bells rings and stay until the last child leaves their afterschool program. Help a team of corps members provide a day of after-school tutoring and homework help for up to 200 children. City Year's corps members provide targeted evidence-based interventions that help students stay in school to help them succeed.

Challenge

City Year has a plan to partner with schools and communities to nearly double the rate of students who reach 10th grade on track and on time making them four times more likely to graduate. By reaching that child, at the right time, with the right intervention, can be the difference in whether or not he or she makes it to graduation. City Year is leveraging the energy and idealism of our corps members and the power of national service to help students stay on track to graduation.

Solution

Corps members intervene based on three early warning indicators: poor attendance, disruptive behavior and course failure in math and English. A child who exhibits even one of these indicators as early as sixth grade has a 75 percent chance of dropping out. In an afterschool program, corps members coach students toward behaviors and attitudes that reflect a strong, purpose-driven character through general instruction, mentoring and incentive programs.

Long-Term Impact

Our Long-Term Impact goal is to ensure 80% of the students in the schools City Year serves reach 10th grade on track and on time, serving the majority of at-risk students in the locations where City Year serves. City Year focuses that service in communities where the dropout challenge is most concentrated, ultimately serving two-thirds of the nation's dropouts.
