Mentoring & Tutoring
VOPIN continues to focus on best practices to address the academic gap for our students. Navigating Education (NE) is a re-engagement program to address the myriad needs of youth at high risk for academic failure and who have left or are at risk of leaving school before graduation. NE objective is to improve student's academic achievement and educational outcomes through positive relationships and social, emotional, and academic support. It provides additional capacity in classrooms, monitors student progress, and provides one-on-one tutoring and small-group instruction, combing culturally resonant education support with evidence-based social-emotional support.
The after-school support provides one-on-one and small group tutoring tailored to the individual needs of each student, social-emotional development, and supplemental support (college application, job application, time management, study habits, etc.). VOPIN continues to collaborate with other community organizations, such as the Kitsap Regional Library, to deliver live tutoring beyond Kitsap County. We are also excited about our agreement with Bremerton School District to serve students of Bremerton High School.
