BacktoSchool provides educational tutoring. In Afghanistan, this is an accelerated learning program for out of school youth. Students come to Skate School five days a week for classes covering the national curriculum. Upon completion of the program Skateistan enrols students into a public school, usually in the 3rd or 4th grade. In South Africa, the program provides after school homework help and career guidance at the Dropping In center of the Skate School.
Back-To-School = students + school stationary (+ a skateboard and sports equipment for after class)
Skateistan is proud to announce the success of our 2012/2013 Back to School (BTS) students in Kabul. After one year of accelerated studying at Skateistan, this year 38 students have successfully passed their tests and joined Afghan public school last month, including 50% girls. None of the BTS students had previously attended public school.
