Mission Statement

The mission of the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) is to provide a foundation for future learning success by helping ensure that all first and second graders in the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) can read at or above grade level by the end of second grade.

Description

The Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC) is a partnership between Alexandria's faith communities, the City, the community and the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS).

Tutors work one-on-one with ACPS first and second graders who tested as reading below their grade level but who have the potential to improve. Tutoring takes place at the school during school hours.

Volunteers may tutor once or twice a week. Once-a-week-volunteers may find their own partner or ask to be paired with another tutor to ensure the weekly commitment of two 30 minute sessions is met for each child.

All volunteers receive training from ACPS and have access to books and materials provided by the school. Tutors who work in schools with the Book Buddies program are provided with lesson plans and materials customized to each child's specific needs.

Volunteers must attend training, provide two references and commit to a full school year. Ongoing training and support are offered.
