Innovations for Learning Inc. is a nationally focused education nonprofit, dedicated to insuring that inner-city first and second graders can learn to read at grade-level. One core IFL program to serve this goal is called TutorMate. TutorMate relies on volunteer full time working professionals who provide just 30 minutes per week to provide online reading tutoring to a struggling student. The volunteers tutor directly from their workplace, or in fact from any location with internet access. This approach enables busy employees to find the time to give back to their community in a way that makes a difference, without the need to travel to schools at a fixed time each week. TutorMate operates in ten major urban school systems across the US, with employees of 70 major corporations, law firms, associations, and government agencies serving as volunteer tutors.
