The Mission of the Skyline College America Counts Tutoring Program is to:
- Provide long term and focused tutorial assistance to elementary school-aged children underachieving in reading and math.
- Provide systematic training to Skyline College undergraduate students in strategies for tutoring.
- Provide a high quality mentoring program that enriches learning opportunities for both college and elementary school students.
- Assist community college students by enhancing their education and commitment in learning while serving the community.
Since our inception in Spring 2004, we have provided over 12,000 hours of community service. Skyline College's Financial Aid Office in coordination with the Learning Center and local elementary schools are committed to a continued effort in improving the education of our future leaders.
Jerold Ramos - America Counts Tutor at work!
- To motivate others, especially college-aged students, to work with their community schools to help bring about change in young students’ lives.
- To show how, through Service-Learning, everyone benefits. Whether it is the student who learns to read at a level higher, or the volunteer who learns that by helping one child succeed and learn, society has one more adult that can read and write.
