Make a difference through education

Connecting Kids to Christ (CKC) Tutoring is a one-on-one tutoring program that builds a foundation of success on Jesus Christ and academic progress.

CKC volunteer tutors are trained to use IXL, an easy-to-learn educational platform currently used by 14 million students and in 95 of the top 100 U.S. school districts. It is an all-inclusive, interactive, online curriculum for pre-K to 8th grade students. Tutoring sessions also include prayer, engaging Bible lessons and other learning activities.

Tutoring follows the Detroit Public School calendar and is provided from October through May.
