America Reads Tutoring Program

America Reads consists of around 60 USF undergraduate students, who go out into various elementary schools or after-school programs within the San Francisco Unified School District to tutor literacy to children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. The LWC has enjoyed providing this unique opportunity to USF undergraduate students since America Reads began nationwide in 1997. This program is only open to those students who have work study.

Families & Youth in Transition Tutoring Program

The Families & Youth in Transition (FYIT) tutoring program provides an opportunity for USF undergraduate and graduate students to tutor at various schools and after-school programs within the San Francisco Unified School District. The student population these tutors work with range from Kindergarten through 12th grade and are either homeless or in transition (residing in a shelter, group home or similar living situation). The tutors in the FYIT program usually have a special interest and passion for helping this particular population within the San Francisco community.
