"We can help bring our city together by declaring our love to all of its children and showing them the faith we have in their future."

Phoenix Citadel's Active Learning Program

The Active Learning Project is a collaboration between ASU's University Service Learning's America Reads/Counts program, the Salvation Army Citadel Corps, and Kenilworth Elementary School to provide after-school tutoring and mentor to at-risk youth in kindergarten through 8th grade. 

With their tutor/mentor the children engage in interactive educational activities that are aligned with the Arizona Academic Standards as published by the Arizona Department Education in reading, writing and math.  They also participate in a group activity session facilitated by our student staff that is aligned with the Arizona Academic Standards in science, social studies, physical education and art.  The children attend our programs four days a week and work with an assigned mentor in a one-on-one setting.

The purpose of our programs is to provide a safe place for children living in low-income areas to receive academic guidance and mentoring from an ASU student.  In support of our program's mission of having every child working independently at their grade level in reading and math, we offer children greater access to books for reading with either their parents or their tutor.  We also aim to increase college-going expectations in all of our children and to help them establish a strong spirit of citizenship and community service.
