Home > KITE: Kids in Training to Excel

KITE is:
A homework center, tutoring and mentoring program. The KITE program is designed to provide mentoring, tutoring, and enrichment to youth in grades 6-9 outside the school day. A certificated high school teacher manages the twice-weekly study table program. High school volunteers, adult volunteers, educational programs, and computer software are all used to facilitate academic support.

 

Why KITE?

  • Focusing on positive protective factors increases graduation rates.
  • Preventive strategies, provided close to home, give additional academic support to children and families in communities.
  • Every youth needs adults who care about school success and encourage academic development.
  • Community leaders can work together to strengthen families and prevent youth violence and substance abuse.
