Rising UP is an Afterschool Literacy Tutoring Program hosted within Charlotte Mecklenburg Elementary Schools (CMS), focusing on 4th and 5th grade English Language Learners. We started this program in October and have seen success within Briarwood Elementary. In 2022, we will be expanding to a second site (TBD) in addition to Briarwood. Tutors do not need to be available for both sites OR both days, for example, if you are only available on Tuesdays you can still tutor as long as you are available for the entire program.
  1. Briarwood: Tutoring will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm, starting February 1 and ending on May 12. (Program is on break the week of 4/12 for spring break)
  2. Site 2 (Location TBD): Tutoring will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm, starting February 1 and ending May 12. (Program is on break the week of 4/12 for spring break)
All tutors must complete the CMS volunteer screening in order to participate.
