Student tutors will serve youth in three counties


Through the Cornell Public Service Center’s chapter of the national Let's Get Ready program, Cornell students tutor high school students, offer intensive SAT test preparation, college application assistance and serve as powerful role models for college success.

Now Cornell students’ reach will expand to all high school students in three counties thanks to a new Public Service Center partnership with Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga BOCES. Tutors will have access to TST BOCES classrooms and equipment, and TST BOCES is providing a professional staff developer to train, guide and mentor Cornell students. 

“This is a huge gain for the program and a great opportunity to expand the program to a broader population of students in our community,” said Amy Somchanhmavong, associate director, service learning at the Public Service Center.
