Last week, a year’s worth of hard work and planning came to fruition. The Neighborhood Tutoring Program launched a new site: Thursday night Math at Jubilee Housing Services. This is NTP’s ninth tutoring program and fifth off-site program. The program is led by Felise Ortiz, an AmeriCorps member who was previously a site coordinator for the Thursday night Math program at FLOC. While this program started small, it could grow to as many as 15 pairs.
The Thursday night Math program is consistently one of the most popular programs for students and tutors, often being the first to fill up. Having an additional Math program at the same time and within a block of the FLOC offices allows us to serve even more students. We anticipate that this will become another popular program.
Jubilee Housing Services has been a partner of FLOC for several years, working together towards the same goal of providing all DC students with quality out-of-school-time services. We are grateful for the hard work of the Jubilee staff, specifically Katherine Spinney (Director of Youth Services), which allowed us to expand our reach within the Adams Morgan community.
