Aspire Tutoring (2nd – 6th grades)

Print Friendly

Aspire is the recipient of the 2012 Community-Based Program of the Year, awarded by the International Society of Crime Prevention Practitioners (ISCPP). In 2014, Aspire was named by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services as a program in line with their six foundational principles of community safety.

What? Why?
Aspire is a no-cost, high quality, after-school tutoring program for children (2nd – 6th grades) provided in priority neighbourhoods in Mississauga. By improving academic achievement and building peer relationships, Aspire helps students reach their full potential. Students who love school are less likely to drop out of school and to engage in criminal activities. Parents of Aspire not only reported improved academic grades and social skills but also reported having increased quality time with their children due to faster homework completion.
How?
Aspire students (2nd – 6th grades) are paired with a peer tutor (high-school or college/university student) who meet once a week after school to work on an area of academic need.

Only students with an identified area of academic need and/or identified geographical reference to the tutoring site is eligible. This will be part of the intake for the parents and can come from the student’s teacher, social worker, etc.
