The Teach 2 the Core project is a “Pay It Forward” non-profit Philadelphia youth mentoring program. We pair inner-city children with mentors who came from similar neighborhoods and are currently in college or seniors in high school and have a proven record of academic success. In return for free tutoring services, the younger students will be encouraged to donate time towards a community beautification project.
The students in the program can communicate with their mentors, receive tutoring services including private sessions with a certified reading specialist as well as homework help, and take part in game-based educational activities.
Students in the program will also have the opportunity to participate in Teach 2 the Core cultural events including field trips to the museum, galleries, health and cooking classes, physical education, and sporting events.
