March 2021Vol. 22, No. 3iFoster Partners With Learn to Be to Offer Free Tutoring
iFoster, a nonprofit that serves children in foster care, recently partnered with Learn to Be, an organization that provides one-on-one virtual tutoring for students, to provide free tutoring for its members. The free, virtual program is accessible via a Chromebook, laptop, or desktop. To sign up, a caregiver, social worker, or someone familiar with the child can fill out an enrollment form for the program. Most students are matched with a tutor within 24 hours. iFoster prioritizes referrals made by and on behalf of its members. However, signing up for a membership is free.
Since the partnership launched in November, iFoster members have received almost 3,000 minutes of free tutoring in various subjects.
