Summer Step Up


Summer Step Up helps students maintain and strengthen their literacy and academic skills over the summer.

Our tutors provide engaging, individualized one-on-one tutoring in a casual summer environment, working on each student’s specific learning needs as identified by their classroom teacher or their family. 

Our 2023 tutoring sessions are offered in person and will take place at the Smithers Community Services Association building.  Tutoring this summer will be for Grades K-12, and will specialize in developing reading strategies and fluency, writing skills, and math.
