Does your child need help catching up in Reading, Writing, Math, Algebra, Geometry or study skills? Do they need the inspiration to believe they can succeed? Do you see yourself when you were stuck and needed help as a student? At Academically Instructional Mentoring (AIM), we know you have big dreams for your child, and we believe every child can thrive in school with help from our after-school free tutoring program.

Students in grades 6-12 will receive 45 minutes of tutoring from a professional teacher free of charge. All tutors and volunteers have had a police background check.

Tutored students are supported in the AIM™ program with healthy snacks & a free take-home box dinner if needed.
Participants will also have access to our Carnegie Cupboard Youth Pantry of free school supplies, food, and toiletries.

  • See an improvement in classroom behavior & participation
