COMMUNITY COLLABORATIONS

The UCLA Pritzker Center has organized the free Bruin Tutor Network in response to the growing need for additional support while schools have transitioned to remote learning due to COVID-19. The network is comprised of UCLA student volunteers providing free online homework help specifically for K-12 youth in foster care who are attending LA County schools.

Children are tutored virtually for free 1 hour per week by a UCLA student, and families are matched with tutors based on skills and expertise. Tutors and families will organize the tutoring schedule (1 hour/week) and platform for meeting online.

This research is made possible through our work with our community partners working in both domestic violence and child welfare. Together with a cohort of agencies, including East LA Women’s Center, Jenesse Center, the Center for the Pacific Asian Family, Korean American Family Services, Richstone Family Center, Peace Over Violence, Strength United, and the YWCA of Glendale, we are working toward innovative solutions to safely preventing removal in homes where domestic violence is present.

As schools work toward re-opening after remote learning due to COVID-19, students, families, and school personnel will need support through this transition. The UCLA Pritzker Center, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (DMH), through the LA County DMH+UCLA Public Partnership for Wellbeing, will use a multidisciplinary community-partnered approach to provide vital services and support to schools in LA County.
