We are excited to be offering our Study Buddy program in an online format!
What is the Study Buddy Program?
The Study Buddy program is a weekly one-to-one mentoring relationship that focuses on school work. Littles in this program not only improve their academics but also report a higher level of self-esteem. This program is for all female identified youth who need academic assistance.
The program strives to do the following:
Provide an academic role model to girls, transgender youth, and non-binary youth ages 7-17
Increase educational performance
Promote the importance of staying in school and increase school attendance
Enhance educational goal setting
Decrease disruptive behaviour in school
Study Buddies work together to set appropriate educational goals for the Little. With the support of a Study Buddy tutor, Little Study Buddies are encouraged and equipped to improve their educational performance and meet their academic goals, which contributes to their overall self-esteem.
