Neighborhood School Centers

The Fitz Center for Leadership in Community's Educational Equity & Volunteer Programs provide University of Dayton students opportunities to collaborate with community schools and education based organizations on student learning and development, connecting with families and engaging with the community. The Educational Equity & Volunteer Programs focus on incorporating holistic approaches to tutoring, workshopping and volunteering to promote educational equity. The program also aims to facilitate the professional development, teaching and coaching of UD students on “rules of engagement," educational pedagogy, racial equity and cultural competency, while providing educational opportunities for K-12 students that will further their educational attainment. 

  • Educational Equity Volunteer Mentors support various site coordinators, site supervisors, and program directors with reading and writing groups, mentorship programs, after school tutoring, and other program facilitation for students in grades PreK-12th grade.
  • Educational Equity Tutors support community schools and education based organizations by  assisting site coordinators and supervisors with in-school and/or out-of-school programming, math and literacy tutoring, and educational/mentoring support of students.
