Program Mission

Study Buddies is the oldest of Y.E.S.'s programs. The program offers free tutoring for elementary through middle school students who would be least able to afford these services and focuses on the specific needs of the tutee. Mentor/mentee relationships built during the time of service are also emphasized. Study Buddies longevity speaks to the original need for this service.

Service, Goals & Projects

Volunteers work with the after school programs at local elementary schools. Some students provide services at Trillium Charter School and Jefferson Community Center. Other students are matched one-on-one with a Tutorial Program volunteer who meets with them at the school sites.
 
The goals of this program are to reach as many students as possible. We are always looking for volunteers to meet the high demand for assistance and are dedicated to upgrading the quality of educational resources by jumping into a classroom setting.
