About: The Hill Center transforms students with learning differences into confident, independent learners. The Hill Center’s student programs and teacher training programs are all grounded in research, individualized instruction and successful instructional techniques. Hill’s literacy intervention, the Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP), provides teachers with the tools and knowledge they need to serve students performing below their potential.
2017-18 DGIN funding will help support the HillRAP tutoring partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange counties. This project leverages existing space at Hill, and while there are some transportation costs incurred, the majority of the project budget is dedicated to tutoring. Funds from the Community Care Fund will support tutor compensation, Hill staff and tech support during the tutoring sessions, and student and teacher materials.
