Peer Power is a non-profit organization that recruits and trains high-performing students to tutor and mentor their peers, encourage active learning, value education and be personally accountable for their futures.
Tutors work with scholars one hour after school Monday through Thursday. Wednesday evenings and Saturday sessions are conducted for three and one-half hours. Science Saturdays are held once a month and have a science, technology, education, and math (STEM) curriculum, which is integrated with the daily after school programs. The Career Saturday is a monthly activity hosted by local businesses and colleges that exposes students to the careers and skills they need to be fully employed and productive citizens.
The program employs HS and College Honor students to tutor 7-12 grade students during and after school as well as during summer programs. The program also provides tutoring for the ACT and train tutors during the University Summer Institute..
There is no charge for any programs.
