Every Tuesday, volunteers tutor children from Anacostia one-on-one to help make a difference in their personal and academic lives.


Horton’s Kids seeks to empower at-risk children and prepare them for successful and healthy lives through educational opportunities and comprehensive programs tailored to their needs. Serving 500 children in grades K-12, Horton’s Kids provides children with year-round programs focused on three areas: academic supports, enrichment opportunities, and health and basic needs.

On Wednesday evenings, from September to June, Horton's Kids brings children from Anacostia's Wellington Park to the Department of Education for one-on-one tutoring by great volunteers from all over the DC area. Volunteers can make a full-time commitment to tutoring a single child once a week from 5:00-6:00 pm. We are looking for tutors to help the children complete homework and work on literacy skills through guided activities who can commit for one full school year from September - June.
