The B.O.O.S.T tutoring program offers free homework assistance and academic enrichment activities in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays) students participating in the program receive 2 hours of academic support and enrichment per day. Students are provided dinner and based on individualized learning needs; they receive one-on-one or small group learning with tutors. Through each of these sessions students learn study, organizational, and leadership skills that equip and empower them for success in and outside of the classroom setting. Academic progress is measured by monitoring grades from progress reports to report cards. In addition, tutors monitor weekly progress on graded assignments and tests. Experiential learning activities are scheduled for the students to attend at the University of Maryland College Park for the days that the students are out of school. Over the course of the year, they will attend a variety of workshops that will allow them to explore and prepare for college. Concurrently, while children are enrolled in tutoring parents are able to receive access to educational and community resource supports through small group workshops.
