What is America Counts?

Skyline College’s America Counts Program is a tutoring program that provides tutorial assistance to elementary school aged children underachieving in reading and math.

Our Goals are:

  • To motivate others, especially college-aged students, to work with their community schools to help bring about change in young students' lives.
  • To show how, through Service-Learning, everyone benefits. Whether it is the student who learns to read at a level higher, or the volunteer who learns that by helping one child succeed and learn, society has one more adult that can read and write.

America Counts Tutoring Program benefits:

  • Helps to improve the reading and math performance of elementary school children by providing focused tutorial assistance, especially those who are at risk of experiencing difficulty in reading and math.
  • Assists community college students by enhancing their education and commitment in learning while serving the community.
