Why is the Academic Achievers Program Important?

The Academic Achievers Program, an intervention initiative by ReDefiners World Languages, aims to ensure that elementary school children are reading at grade level. This personalized support program offers 1:1 English literacy tutoring to students who have been identified as at risk of not meeting grade-level requirements. The program is open to children in grades K-5, including non-native English speakers, and is completely free for children residing in Hillsborough County.

One of the remarkable aspects of the Academic Achievers Program is the involvement of AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers. These volunteers, often bilingual in English and languages such as Spanish or Arabic, serve as tutors and provide out-of-school-time learning support to the students. The AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers, aged 55 or older and from the Tampa Bay area, utilize their skills and experience to empower children to become multilingual global citizens. This collaborative effort between experienced seniors and eager young learners creates a dynamic learning environment that fosters growth and success.
