A-OK volunteers who meet one-on-one with a student begin mentoring in elementary school.  As the child progresses to middle school, A-OK will coordinate with the applicable middle school to continue the tutoring relationship if it is desired by the student and the volunteer. 

Do you know an elementary-aged student who's in need of a tutor? Let us know!

A-OK volunteers are active in three after-school programs.  The first two programs take place directly after school, generally between 3 – 6 p.m., and focus on academics.  Enrichment activities are also provided. The Saturday Math Academy takes place from 9 – 12 a.m.  Professional staff is present at all three programs. 

  • Black Student Achievement Program (BSAP): Although the BSAP was established to help black students to achieve at as high a level academically as the student body at large, students of any race, who need additional academic support, can participate. 

  • Bridges Across Howard County: This federally funded program has after-school learning centers in 18 schools. 

  • BSAP Saturday Math Academy (SMA): This program was established to accelerate academic achievement in mathematics for students at all performance levels. 

In 2019, A-OK expanded to begin serving select Head Start students with additional, trustworthy adult support for the classrooms. That program has not picked up since the COVID-19 pandemic.
