CityTutor DC Announces New, Expanded HIT Partnerships
CityTutor DC and Georgetown University have partnered to expand the DC Schools Project at Georgetown’s Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching & Service. Georgetown University students will provide high-impact tutoring and support services for migrant and newcomer youth in Washington, DC.
“High-impact tutoring for newcomer migrant students will improve their literacy skills and academic performance,” said Jessica Lee, Assistant Director for Immigrant Justice Initiatives at the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching & Service. “Ultimately, our race-conscious and justice-focused approach works to increase the ability of the youth and families to fully participate in the cultural, civic, educational, and economic life in US society and close the equity gap.”
DC Schools Project’s individual or small group tutoring model will serve K-12 students both during school and after school, meeting students where they are. During the spring semester of school year 22-23, Georgetown tutors will serve approximately 100 elementary, middle, and high school students across the District with high-impact tutoring.
Additionally, CityTutor DC has expanded partnerships with six tutoring provider partners—including universities, tutoring organizations, and school networks—to provide school day high-impact tutoring for several hundred students throughout the District this school year.
