Augustine Project Orientation and Training Dates:
Training dates: Monday-Thursday July 13-16 and Monday-Thursday July 20-23
Email Lily at email@example.com to register for an orientation. Additional dates can be arranged in June and early July if you cannot make it to one of these orientations.
Program description: The Augustine Project® seeks to improve the academic achievement and thereby the self esteem of low-income children and teens who struggle with literacy skills. The project trains tutors who provide free, 1-on-1, long-term instruction in reading, writing and spelling. Tutoring usually takes place twice a week at the child’s school during the school day if teachers and administrators are amenable. Alternate tutoring sites may include after school programs. Lessons last approximately 50 minutes.
