“The whole world opened to me when I learned to read.”
The Education committee operates an after-school tutorial program (ages 6-10) at Christ Church International from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Outreach is conducted with local elementary schools to identify children in need of assistance. Members of the Queens County Section volunteer as tutors to provide homework assistance, as well as strengthen math and reading skills. Students majoring in education at York College also have an opportunity to volunteer with the program. School staff and parents of the participating children have provided feedback regarding positive impact of the tutorial program in helping the children to improve during the school year.
