Setting Students up for Success in Grades K-2
The After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program is an imperative intervention for the K-2 students who score below grade-level on County assessments. This program provides the extra attention and support these students need to reach the academic milestones required for success in school. Students in this program consistently show demonstrable gains during the school year and in the summer. A true strength of our program is the high school students who are tutors and role models for the young students, giving them someone they identify with to emulate.

Alex Sees Learning Gains Through After-School Tutoring
Unable to speak English, 7-year-old Alex started the school year with low letter and number recognition, and he had a tough time being in the classroom and following directions because he had never been in a structured school setting.
He started attending the Guadalupe After-school Tutoring Program, receiving small group instruction and individualized help from the high school Tutor Corps students. These helpers provide the support he needs with his homework, sight words and reading. As a result, he has improved tremendously!
Why Invest in Guadalupe Center’s After-school Tutoring Program?
“Guadalupe Center’s After-school Tutoring Program gives students that additional boost, that sense of belonging that helps our schools to be stronger, helps our families to be stronger, and ultimately, elevates our community (of Immokalee) even more.”
Kamela Patton, Superintendent, Collier County Public Schools
