It all starts with Literacy.

In video, Denver schools show their pride in TutorMate


How much does the city of Denver appreciate TutorMate?

Plenty, according to this video created entirely by our partners, the Denver Public Schools Foundation and the Mile High United Way.

The short video was shown Tuesday night at a gala in Denver of 1,400 people, including Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper  and Sen. Michael Bennet,  kicking off a coordinated campaign to increase volunteerism in Denver schools. TutorMate was one of the three main initiatives.

“It demonstrates better than we could tell the story ourselves, how much promise our solution has as it scales across the country,” said Seth Weinberger, founder and executive director of TutorMate’s parent, Innovations for Learning.

It’s a terrific compliment to our program, and we want to thank our tutors at Western Union’s Denver headquarters and our TutorMate teachers and students in Denver Public Schools for collaborating on it.
