Learning Bridge

We match tutors with kids in foster care to give them the educational support they need to stay in school, improve academic performance, and achieve greater success later in life.

Learning Bridge screens and trains community volunteers to tutor kids in foster care. Volunteers do not have to be educators – just committed adults who will show up each week for a student. Tutors assist students with homework or work with students on subjects that are challenging to them. The program serves students in K-12th grade in Travis, Hays, Bastrop and Williamson counties of Texas and is free to foster and kinship families.
