Working hard at tutoring!


EVkids is a non-profit formed in the Catholic social justice tradition that has been tutoring and mentoring youth in Dorchester since 1985. We pair college or young alum volunteers with an inner city youth from Boston for weekly one:one tutoring and mentorship. EVkids ’ mission is to empower youth from Boston’s inner city with the skills and confidence needed to realize their potential. We also form a supportive community for our tutors with opportunities for reflection and professional skill development.
Our tutoring sites are located at Harbor Point and at St. Christopher's Church off the JFK/UMASS red line stop in Dorchester. Tutors volunteer weekly on Tues., Wed., or Thurs. from 4-5:45pm. (Leave from Harvard T at 3:15pm, return to campus by about 6:30/45pm). Tutors make an initial one (academic) year commitment.
