Tutor me program
Rose Again Foundation created our Tutor Me Program when several foster families reached out expressing a dire and immediate need for tutoring. One family had foster children tied to a high profile case and they were not allowed to attend school for their own safety. Another family shared that their fosters had never gone to school and could only write their first name at ages 9 and 11, and yet were placed in their grade level at school.
Our Tutor Me program provides in-home tutoring to Emergency / New Placement foster children to help them catch up to their grade level at school. Being taught in the comfort and privacy of their foster home is key to helping the kids learn. Understanding what is being taught in the classroom helps foster kids better acclimate to their new school, builds self esteem and allows the fosters to make new friends.
