CCACH has been living out its educational mandate for more than 20 years with its CCACH Tutoring Program.
Every Saturday morning from September 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 are at 9-10am, 10-11am and 11am-12pm every Saturday during the academic year.
Program tutors are students from the University of Alberta, NAIT or MacKewan University.

Cost: $50/student for September 2016-2017
The subject areas covered are English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Calculus. Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Social Studies. The tutors can also help students with essay writing and test-taking skills. Tutoring in French is also available upon request.
As part of its mandate, CCACH aims to help enhance the social, economic and educational life of the African and Caribbean heritage communities.
The one-on-one sessions of the CCACH Tutoring Program gives the opportunity for CCACH tutors to mentor their students in areas of career development, volunteerism and culture. CCACH believes these relationships happen naturally between students and tutors, and encourage mentorship opportunities for the advancement of our students.
Tutors are asked to commit four hours per week to the CCACH Tutoring Program throughout the academic year. A nominal subsidy is available for tutors.
CCACH is always looking for qualified people to be tutors and mentors in the CCACH Tutoring Program. If you believe you or someone you know are a great fit for the program, please contact Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
