Students in need of the most intensive support are referred to small-group tutoring with an AmeriCorps Mentor. Groups of 4-5 students meet daily for 30 minutes, and stay together throughout the school year, allowing students the time they need to build strong connections with their Tutor and make significant growth in their skills.

Mentors structure their lessons by alternating their tutoring sessions between nutrition education and physical activities. Mentors focus on goal-setting and skill-building in a safe and caring setting drawing on evidence-based curriculum to help students make healthy choices in their lives.
