Trusting partnerships with young people and families are at the heart of our work.
In coordination with six community-based organizations, CityTutor DC is providing $600,000 in funding and other support to establish CityTutor Hubs across DC. These CityTutor Hubs will provide high-impact tutoring and other services to more than 300 students. These innovative partnerships will ensure that young people furthest from opportunity will have a path for success.

What Are CityTutor Hubs?
CityTutor Hubs are spaces run by community-based organizations where DC students can receive high-impact tutoring and other services to meet their needs amid the pandemic. CityTutor DC is providing funding, training, tools, and collaboration to ensure Hubs are successful. The community-based organizations build on their trusting relationships with families and young people to create warm, welcoming environments for learning and growth.
Why CityTutor Hubs?
The leaders of CityTutor DC heard loud and clear from coalition members that families and young people needed options for tutoring beyond schools. DC’s rich fabric of youth development organizations provides tremendous opportunities to connect tutoring to students where they feel they belong. Tutoring needs to meet students where they are in order to be successful. CityTutorDC sees this as a way to build the capacity of community-based organizations, to add a proven set of educational strategies to the great work they are already doing.
