BE A TUTOR in KidSmart, Bayshore Christian Ministries’ academic program from Monday-Thursday, 3:00-6:30, for youth in grades 1-5 in the East Palo Alto community.
KidSmart is an after school tutoring program that supports the academic and social development of the children in our community. The program surrounds kids with a caring and safe environment in which they can reach their full potential.
When children are behind in school, they quickly learn the mindset of "I can’t." "I can’t do math." "I can’t read." For these children to grow into leaders in their families and communities, they need to believe they can. "I can do math." "I can make a difference." Through KidSmart, BCM works to show youth they can, by providing a supportive environment and highly-relational tutoring.
