CCACH has been living out its educational mandate for more than 20 years with its CCACH Tutoring Program.
Every Saturday morning from October to June, CCACH offers one-on-one academic tutoring for students grades 1-12 to help them with course material they are having trouble with, or to help them advance in the upcoming school curriculum. In addition to strengthening academic skills, improving marks and test scores, the CCACH Tutoring Program also helps increase confidence in school and connect with a mentor who understands being a student of African or Caribbean descent.
Highly skilled and trained tutors have one-on-one sessions for one hour (60 minutes) with students at CCACH offices (Basement Suite 01, 10275 Jasper Ave). The one-hour tutoring sessions start at 10am. Sessions available are 10am-11am, 11am-12pm and 12pm-1pm every Saturday during the academic year (except holiday weekends).
Program tutors are students from the University of Alberta, NAIT or MacKewan University and/or have a shared experience as CCACH students.

CCACH believes these relationships happen naturally between students and tutors, and encourage mentorship opportunities for the advancement of our students.
