Its back to school time! Our Kids at Heart free one-to-one tutoring program has shifted online to support distance learning. Instead of our annual group Parent Orientations, we are hosting four evening hands on Zoom Workshops for families, socially distanced in our parking lot.
Back Pack distribution is also happening in the parking lot with our students receiving free backpacks filled with books and school supplies. All possible and thanks to your faithful support and generous donations!
We are also are also in the midst of onboarding new and returning students & tutors! The demand is so high for virtual learning assistance right now. Students in schools KAH tutoring serves are are especially at risk of falling behind in school right now for many reasons.
Do you enjoy working with youth? Are you willing to learn how to use Zoom? Do you want to make a difference?

Why do you tutor at UPLIFT?
"When I moved to San Diego I was looking to get involved with an organization that does meaningful work with immediate results. Continuing education has been a calling of mine because it contributes to the development of our communities by empowering our youth to have the confidence to take on bigger challenges. Tutoring for one hour a week may seem small, but it has an enormous impact."
Why do you care about tutoring youth?
"Growing up I was blessed with the opportunity to be surrounded by teachers and family members who not only encouraged me to read, but had the resources to help assist. It is incredibly gratifying to work with these students on reading or schoolwork because they are incredibly dedicated. Some face challenges many of us have never experienced, but they are always willing to learn (and smile while doing it)"
What’s the best part?
"The look on their faces when they finally “get it” and can explain or read a problem back to me is SO rewarding."
How many of you agree and resonate with Kaitlyn's wonderful responses? What moved you? We are moved and uplifted everyday by our amazingly dedicated volunteers and donors who choose to be of service to our neighbors in need. It is because of volunteers like you and Kaitlyn, that we get to UPLIFT and transform San Diego's inner-city communities everyday.
