This volunteer opportunity is to support the Horizons Albuquerque tutoring program during the regular school year for 1st - 9th grade students, a minimum of once per week, with focus on Reading and Math. We expect writing and science will also be supported at some level. For more general Horizons info please visit: https://www.horizonsalbuquerque.org/.
Horizons is a nationally recognized academic enrichment program that addresses the achievement gap and summer learning loss for public school students from low-income families that qualify under the federal income guidelines for free or reduced lunch. Horizons Albuquerque, an affiliate of Horizons National, is partnering with a number of APS schools. The program is grounded with a six-week summer school session and is supplemented with family engagement workshops and after school tutoring/enrichment sessions throughout the school year.
