8TH GRADERS

MOYS is piloting a new tier of MAP in January 2018!

This after school-based tutoring/mentoring program will give current 8th grade students an opportunity to work with college students and professionals in the fields of Math, Science, English, and Social Studies who can help them with their academics while developing meaningful relationships. 8th graders in MAP will acquire academic, social, civic, and professional skills that will equip them for high school and beyond.

MAP 8th Grade will incorporate part-time MOYS Youth Specialists, volunteer tutor-mentors, and a participatory curriculum that will engage students to learn in new and exciting ways. In addition, 8th graders in MAP will partner with local libraries and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Memphis to help elementary-aged students with their studies.
