The C.A.R.E. (Career Awareness Related Experience) program's free After-School Homework Help & Tutoring Program has started!
It is held on Mondays through Thursdays from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Armory Sports Center, 701 East Ash (2nd floor).
Many of the volunteer tutors are provided by MU's Office of Service Learning.
C.A.R.E., which began in 1982, is operated through Parks and Recreation and includes:
- work-based hands-on experience
- mentoring life skills training, and
for Columbia's at-risk youth.
The C.A.R.E. program's goal is for "Columbia's youth to be ready to enter the workforce and become productive, self-sufficient citizens." Youth lacking in employment experience and life skills can lead to unemployment and underemployment, which can lead to increased crime, alcoholism, drug addiction, and dependence upon government assistance.
