Project LINK’s school readiness programs promote conditions and behaviors that enhance students’ readiness to learn by promoting parental involvement, community interaction, obtainment of school supplies, and to ensure health requirements are met to attend schools in Hillsborough County.
After School Tutorial Program
Our After-school tutorial program provides students with additional curriculum assistance after school during the school year. Regular activities include homework help, tutorial assistance, computer work, and afternoon snacks.
The program focuses on tutoring students in grade levels K-8. Our tutorial program is an important part of a comprehensive literacy instruction class for students seeking improved reading & math levels.
Tutorial instruction, based on the child’s development, is composed of five activities: read to, read with, word study, writing and math. The children who attend the tutorial reading programs range from one to two years below their grade level in reading, spelling, and writing.
Certified teachers from the Hillsborough County School System facilitate the program.
The purpose of the “Back 2 School Health Clinic” is to initiate school readiness, parental involvement, and community interaction, targeting economically challenged families who reside in Hillsborough County and have children that attend schools throughout Hillsborough County Public School System.
This event targets students entering kindergarten through high school levels. Students are provided with free school supplies such as backpacks, pens, paper, notebooks, and rulers in addition to health services such as immunization, eye examinations, and physicals—all requirements needed to attend schools in the Hillsborough County School District.
