Virtual tutoring and mentoring


During the academic school year, we offer free tutoring in the evenings, online and by phone, allowing students in grades 6-12 to connect with a professionally trained IU college student to get help with math, English, science or social studies.

Mentor partnering

Once enrolled in the program, students can participate in mentoring with a professionally trained college student, community member or former educator. Mentors will discuss career and college goals and challenges, while also supporting positive decision making.

Virtual hours

Virtual tutoring and mentoring services are offered September through May on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for one-hour sessions from 5:00 pm – 9:15 pm EST.

Programs and workshops

Enrolled students, parents, guardians and adult caregivers can participate in workshops to support their learning by participating in forums and activities focused on college and career readiness.  This includes opportunities to participate in college campus tours.

The Young Scholars Program


The Young Scholars Program is a two-year pilot program created by the Office of Community Engagement’s Family, School and Neighborhood Engagement Office at IUPUI. The program is a partnership with Indianapolis Public Schools that launched in September 2022 at Theodore Potter School 74 and Robert Lee Frost School 106.


The Young Scholars Program focuses on providing students in grades K-2 one-to-one, 30-minute, high-dosage tutoring and social emotional mentoring interventions. The curriculum approach used is Orton Gillingham phonics-based instruction as well as other literacy strategies. Tutors/mentors work flexible schedules, as they select the number of days and hours they work each week. 


Monday-Friday, 9:30 am-3 pm


The goals of the Young Scholars Program are 1) to assist and strengthen children’s literacy skills, leading to grade-level promotion; and 2) ensuring children who complete the program are reading at or above grade level.

Program Completion

Children “complete the program” when their performance on pre- and post-assessments improve and when tutors/mentors, teachers and administration agree that they have mastered the necessary literacy skills to work at or above grade level.
