Tutoring at Gladiator Sports

 

Tutoring at Gladiator Sports

Tutor students ages 5 through 15, across a variety of academic subjects and show them that sports and education go hand in hand. Work with small groups of students to review basic math, reading, science and social studies concepts. Students participate in this program as part of the basketball program at Gladiator Sports. Volunteers are encouraged to attend this project weekly.

Partner

Gladiator Sports Inc. is a Harlem-based non-profit organization that provides basketball and educational programs for boys and girls aged 6 to 18. Their mission is to target barriers that restrict youth sports participation in Central Harlem and create solutions that increase opportunities for participation. They also believe that strong minds are essential in this ever changing world. In an attempt to address this issue, Gladiator Sports provides Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Current Events to reinforce their youth's academic stability. They believe in putting education first - their children must perform in the classroom before they can perform on the court.
