Mission Statement

EVkids empowers youth from Boston’s inner city with the skills and confidence needed to realize their potential. We create a community of support with a school-year tutoring/mentoring program and a life-changing summer camp experience in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

Description

EVkids empowers inner-city Boston youth with the skills and confidence needed to realize their potential. EVkids helps low-income, academically vulnerable children and teens (grades 4-12) succeed in school and life by systematically strengthening core academic skills, organizational habits, and other life skills.

Since 2007, 100% of our high school seniors have graduated on time and gone on to college. We accomplish this by recruiting and training a motivated volunteer EVcorps of university students who provide one-on-one, multi-year, after-school tutoring and mentoring, closely supported by professional staff who provide family engagement and school advocacy.

By building a caring community of support, where success is expected and achievable together, we believe our EVkids and their EVcorps tutors will become integral parts of a more socially just, tolerant, and compassionate world.

Tutots make an initial committment of one academic year and tutor weekly from 4pm-5:45pm either on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday at our site in Dorchester. Volunteers must be able to tutor at one of these times.
