Mission Statement

All-Star Kids Tutoring (ASKT) is a one-on-one volunteer tutoring program that helps elementary-school-age children master basic reading skills. The vision of ASKT is to teach children essential reading skills to ensure a foundation for a successful life.

Description

The ASKT program works closely with Title I schools to identify students who are behind in their grade level in reading but may not qualify for school assistance. All-Star Kids Tutoring meets weekly at sites around the Valley for 90 minutes during the school year. Each meeting includes an hour of one-on-one tutoring, a healthy snack and drink break and a group activity that reinforces literacy skills.
Working with the same student each week, tutors are able to recognize a marked improvement in the students' reading ability and confidence level. In fact, the Virginia Piper Trust found that ASKT students made significant gains in reading compared to similar students who had not participated in the program. In addition to assisting the children academically, volunteers also serve as role models for students through their caring and consistent presence each week.
