EVcorps tutors partake in ongoing trainings and reflections with peers on their service experience. EVcorps tutors average two years of service and graduate from EVkids to become life-long agents of positive social change.

About us Through the weekly after-school Tutoring Program, annual Camp in the summer, and the College Success Project for high schoolers, EVkids provides a continuum of services to help low-income, academically vulnerable children and teens (beginning in grades 4-12) succeed in school and life by systematically strengthening core academic skills, organizational habits, and other life skills. By building a caring community of support, where success is expected and achievable together, we believe our EVkids and their EVcorps tutors will become integral parts of a more socially just and compassionate world.
