28 May TN Tutoring Corps, Boys & Girls Club to fight ‘summer slide’
Posted at 14:27h in Morning Show
Two non-profits are teaming up to fight summer learning loss across Tennessee. This is an issue even more pressing due to the COVID-19 pandemic barring kids from traditional classrooms since March.
The Bill and Crissy Haslam Foundation, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs in Tennessee and other youth-serving organizations across the state, launched the Tennessee Tutoring Corps to provide summer learning opportunities for students in grades K-6 whose education has been interrupted due to the pandemic.
The tutoring commitment would be between 7 and 8 weeks, starting June 15 – from June to August, in 18 Boys & Girls Clubs across the state – 8 of which are located in the Tri-Cities Region.
