Hang TYMERS (Teaching Youth Math Enrichment and Reading after School) is an after school program for at-risk children created by college volunteers from the University of Alabama. The program focuses on reading and mathematical mastery through one-on-one mentoring. In the beginning, sixth grade students are paired with a college mentor. This mentor serves as a role model, teacher, and friend. The idea behind the program is to challenge disadvantage children to answer the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Throughout the program, middle school students set short-term and long-term goals and create a plan to reach those goals. This year students will also use math, language arts, social studies, and science to answer real-world problems. Not only do the students gain academic mastery, they grow socially and emotionally with their mentor. The mentors work once a week for two hours in the school and gain knowledge and experience that can not be measured. The program has grown and helped children learn to love school and feel comfortable achieving success.
