About This Program
StudyTime is an after-school tutoring and mentoring program where students from grades K-8 gather for a nutritious snack and individual mentoring with their homework, reading, writing and math skills. Students also gain confidence in English. StudyTime is facilitated by teachers experienced staff members who are assisted by volunteers. One of our first participants was an honor student at Ursuline Academy and volunteered for StudyTime. She is in her second year in the business school at the University of Texas - Austin.
StudyTime has proven to be extremely successful. During the 2014/15 school year, 93 students participated in the program which was held at Santa Clara of Assisi and our thrift stores in Dallas and Plano. Additionally, we are adding curriculum for reading and math programs and activities to help the students with their social-emotional learning, completed first rounds of reading and social emotional assessments. We have added technology and improved our student to facilitator ratio. Help us continue the momentum by making a donation to StudyTime.
StudyTime is offered from September through May.
