The Sankofa Tutoring System (STS)™ targets middle to high school students of color who are below grade level in their Math & Science or are at risk of falling behind. ADYA launched Sankofa to ‘level the playing field’ by improving students of color Math & Science achievement levels, with a after-school tutoring and mentoring program. The majority of the Sankofa students are of African descent, with the remaining students coming from Hispanic and Asian backgrounds.
The STS™ vision is to provide support and track targeted students from 7th grade through 12th capturing data and make adjustments in order to increase our capacity and effectiveness in improving individual student achievement outcomes. Throughout the STS™ quarterly meetings are held with students, parents, Math teachers, participating students and tutors; to communicate common goals and concerns in order to create “the village effect”.
