About us

OUR MISSION:

Is to create a supportive community for children (and their families) with limited proficiency in English, and to empower them to succeed in school and life.

OUR PURPOSE: 

The purpose of the CALL program is to prepare under-acheiving Hispanic children for school success through weekly tutoring during the school year. These children are expected to speak two languages and be successful in a second language, English, which is not their mother tongue. Educational research shows that children who do not succeed in elementary school are at higher risk for substance abuse, teen pregnancy, gang involvement and violence as well as subsequent school failure, dropping out, and reduced economic success. Moreover, studies suggest, that if we do not successfully engage Hispanic children in elementary school-if they do not leave elementary school loving to read- we have lost the opportunity.

The CALL program attempts to accomplish this with intensive language immersion, cultural exposure and recreation through field trips to museums and public institutions two weeks prior to school starting, one week of Vacation Bible School, two weeks of summer STEM camp, and acting as advocates on behalf of the children at the local schools.

School teachers report that the CALL program helps raise test scores in writing composition, math and reading, which sometimes promotes the student to an Accelerated Reader group! Through CALL, non-hispanics students in need have also been recognized.

The CALL program began in 2005 with 8 children. As of last year, we have 39 students on roll, 15 moms studying Rosetta Stone and receiving personal tutoring, 44 volunteer tutors and 8 schools participating. In 2016, we helped secure access to wireless internet access on mid-high school buses in Moore County, making homework a viable option for children who had no access otherwise.
