Day in the Life Program
U.Va.’s Community Relations Office is committed to helping local youth experience the vitality of the top-ranked public university in their backyard. The office’s major youth-outreach effort is the Day in the Life (DITL) Program, through which U.Va. students tutor local youth.
U.Va. Students serve as tutors and provide instruction to local youth in subjects covered by standardized testing. The help, provided individually and in small groups, is conducted at City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County schools, community sites and at the University.
Since the program’s inception, more than 15,000 local youth have benefited from mentoring and turtoring by U.Va. students.
