Project Northstar is a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring program for children in grades K-12 from low-income or homeless families. Tutoring sessions take place Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 at 1816 Columbia Rd. NW (most volunteers sign up for one of the two sessions a week, although you are welcome to sign up for both!). During this hour and a half student-volunteer pairs work together to complete the students homework and/or study for upcoming tests. Individualized academic materials are provided to each student as well in case they do not have enough homework for the full 90 minutes.

In addition to the academic aspects of the program, tutors to take their student out on a mentoring activity once a month. This could range from a trip to a museum or sporting event, or just spending the day together in the park. The mentoring activities help to solidify the student/tutor relationship and have a significantly positive impact on tutoring sessions.
