The purpose of this session is to gather those who are mobilizing university students as reading and math tutors in K – 6 schools surrounding their colleges/universities, or who are in the beginning stages of developing such programs. The main objectives of this session are to introduce a shared on-line platform created collaboratively last year by over 20 California campuses doing this kind of work as a means to share resources and gather new ideas. We also invite campuses across the region into the network to provide support and camaraderie for all who provide these meaningful experiential learning opportunities to university students who serve surrounding campus communities. The partners for these programs include higher education institutions and their civically-minded students who gain meaningful work experiences while addressing a social need. In addition to student impact, our community partners – the K-6 schools and students served – are greatly impacted. The impact for school partners is individualized academic support for K-6 learners. The impact for university students is in an opportunity to learn and grow through service they provide K-6 children in need. Impact for session participants is entry into a supportive network with resources to draw from and add to.
