OpenDoors is thrilled to launch our new peer tutoring literacy program, AVL Rise, modeled after the wildly successful Reach program in Washington, DC. In the fall of 2021, we will be recruiting, training, and hiring approximately 20 Asheville High School students to serve as student tutors for 20+ elementary school students. They will meet weekly for working sessions held at 2 of our local elementary schools. The result is improved literacy outcomes for both the students and tutors! High school tutors will also gain leadership and financial literacy skills, as well as employability experience. Proudly partnering with Buncombe County for the next 3 years, we can’t wait for AVL Rise to start!
