Our History

 

In 1996, a group of San Carlos citizens started Healthy Cities Tutoring to give our children and families a stronger sense of community through education.Today, Healthy Cities has blossomed into a tutoring program where over hundreds of volunteers share their time and expertise with hundreds of elementary and middle school students each year, making a real difference in the child’s academic progress.

 

Our Mission

 

Healthy Cities Tutoring helps kids who struggle to succeed in school. Community volunteers provide one-on-one tutoring and mentoring for children to improve their academic success, behavior and self-esteem.

By targeting elementary and middle school aged children, we are hoping to prevent more serious problems later in life. 

 

What We Do

 

The Healthy Cities Tutoring Program is a tutor-mentor program providing children aged 5-14 with one-on-one support from community volunteers. Since the program began in February 1997, over 2000 children have been placed with tutors.

During the 2013-2014 school year, 261 students received tutoring and mentoring from 233 volunteers. The volunteers represent a cross section of the community including high school students, senior citizens, parents, and business and community leaders. All of the tutors are citizens who want to give back and help the children who find school a challenge. It is a true community effort.
