Through our Tutoring Program we aim to improve graduation rates among foster youth and help better prepare them for post-secondary education, so they have the skills required to support themselves as productive young adults.
We have contracted an exceptional group of highly qualified tutors, with the experience and training to work one-on-one with foster youth that need extra support to be successful in school. We work hard to ensure that our tutors remain paired with the children throughout the school year, so if they are moved from one foster home to another or are returned to their biological families, our tutors remain a constant source of academic support.
Since we started, Tidewater Friends of Foster Care has provided more than 5,642 hours of tutoring for foster children, to over 168 foster youth, with amazing success. Our objective is to meet the needs of as many school-aged foster youth as possible across Hampton Roads. Contact us to learn more.
