FREE AFTER-SCHOOL LANGUAGE ARTS SUPPORT & HOMEWORK HELP
During the school year, students of all skill levels can visit Page 15’s after-school language arts & homework room at the Downtown Recreation Complex in Parramore for free reading, writing and tutoring help from a trained adult tutor. Open Monday – Thursday, students are greeted by a bright community themed mural, natural lighting, classical music, and a healthy snack which helps renew energy and improve focus.
After settling in, students are paired with a qualified and trained adult tutor to complete homework, and have access to computers and reading material to help complete school assignments. And we might l-o-v-e the language arts, but tutors are willing to help Page 15 Parramore students tackle tough homework in any subject.
Since writing is at the heart of Page 15’s mission, students also practice their writing skills on a daily basis, logging responses to a variety of creative writing prompts in personal journals. Since studies show that daily free writing helps students explore vocabulary, concepts, and writing styles that they wouldn’t risk for a formal essay or graded assignment, Page 15 staff regularly review students’ journals for evaluation of writing, as well as to guage the increase in fluency.

Our heart is in Parramore
Every year, Page 15 gives more than 100 literacy scholarships to children living in the low-income neighborhood of Parramore, a historically significant African American community located in the heart of downtown Orlando. Since 2008, we have been committed to helping Parramore children discover the valuable skills they need to transition out of poverty, and onto the path of opportunity
