SOAR (Student Opportunities for After-School Resources)

SOAR, an after-school tutoring program at the International Prep Academy (IPA) in Champaign, provides literacy support and homework help to Latina/o emergent bilingual/biliterate students in grades 2-5 by pairing them one-on-one with students from the University of Illinois. The SOAR program meets a need by providing accessible after-school programming for children of recent immigrants. University tutors focus on increasing students' engagement in reading with culturally relevant bilingual books. Besides serving as tutors, university students become mentors and role models as they establish close positive relationships with the children and motivate them to strive for academic success. The bilingual students are a wonderful group of children who enjoy interacting with the university volunteers!

The SOAR program has received numerous awards including:

  • Champaign County Latino Partnership - Most Valuable Community Program Recognition
  • University of Illinois CAEPE (Campus Award for Excellence in Public Engagement) Team Award
  • City of Champaign STAR (Service Together Achieves Results) Honoree
  • AERA Education Research Project Grant

Interested in volunteering for SOAR?

Students interested in volunteering with the SOAR must be available from 1:45-3:15 on Tuesday, Wednesday, OR Thursday afternoon, when the SOAR after-school program operates. The tutoring will take place at the International Prep Academy (IPA) in Champaign (1605 W. Kirby Ave.), a short 15-minute MTD bus ride (10 Gold) from campus to a bus stop in the front of the school.

Interested volunteers should contact Lila Moore (see contact details on left).
