For many high schoolers, high school is the final step in a journey of struggles. We want to transform that perception so that high school is instead merely the first step in the quest to success. This DeCal is a tutoring organization that aims to assist and improve the academic experience for students at Berkeley High. More specifically, UC Berkeley students will be tutoring these high schoolers through Berkeley High’s College Career Center. This course will allow tutors to become not only a dependable resource for these students, but also a mentor to convince them of the importance of education.
The overall goal of the DeCal is to provide consistent and high-quality tutoring services to high school students in order to create meaningful bonds between students and tutors as well as promote college awareness. We hope to provide more than just tutoring. We strive to make a difference in each of these students who come from such distinct backgrounds by building a personal confidence that will encourage them to achieve a higher education.
