An Arlington-based affordable housing organization urgently needs more tutors for its educational programs this fall.
As we said in a post last month, AHC Inc. (formerly Arlington Housing Corporation) has been running its teen tutoring program for more than 15 years. Tutors act as a teacher, mentor and role model for ask-risk middle school and high school students who live in AHC communities. They work one-on-one with the teens, devoting at least an hour and a half per week.
But AHC hasn’t been able to find the 60 tutors needed for its growing program.
“We’re getting worried,” said AHC Communications Manager Celia Slater. “Although school – and homework – have already started, we still need about 20 more tutors for teens.”
The 90-minute tutoring sessions take place on weeknights at six locations in Arlington, two of which are Metro accessible.
