LUCENA CITY, Quezon – The provincial governement of Quezon marked the commencement of the Tutoring Program Capability Building initiative for tutors and Youth Development Officers of Quezon Province on June 5, 2024 at the Queen Margarette Hotel in Lucena City, this program is a collaborative effort of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the Quezon Provincial Government, and the Department of Education, with valuable contributions from the Ateneo Center for Educational Development (ACED).

The "Tara, Basa!" tutoring program, a flagship project of the DSWD, aims to equip college students from state colleges and universities with the necessary skills to tutor incoming Grade 2 learners struggling with reading. These dedicated tutors will play a crucial role in improving literacy rates among young learners in the province.

Additionally, the program introduces the "Nanay- Tatay Module", a series of 20 development sessions facilitated by trained youth development workers. This module aims to empower parents with the knowledge and tools to support their children's learning journey and foster a love for reading within their homes.

The DSWD leadership expressed their gratitude to the Quezon Governor Angeline "Doktora Helen" Tan, acknowledging her as the first governor to embrace this initiative through Project Kid Bibo. They also lauded the province's unwavering support and active participation in similar endeavors.

This capability-building program is expected to create a lasting impact on the educational landscape of Quezon Province, paving the way for a brighter future for its young learners.

The program targets 3,600 struggling or non-reading Grade 2 students in Quezon Province, providing them with tutoring from 6,000 college students from low-income families receiving financial aid. 1,076 trained professionals will facilitate parent empowerment sessions as part of the initiative.

Funding is provided by the DSWD Field Office IV-A CALABARZON, and participating educational institutions include Laguna State Polytechnic University Lopez Satellite, Southern Luzon State University, Philippine Normal University South Luzon, PUP Mulanay, PUP Lopez, PUP Unisan, Mauban Community College, and Colegio de la Ciudad de Tayabas.
