Neighborhood Longhorns Program


IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: COVID-19: UT Austin has made modifications to university operations to help slow the spread of COVID-19. To that end, all Neighborhood Longhorns Program tutoring opportunities have been cancelled for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.

The Neighborhood Longhorns Program, uniquely partnered with The University of Texas at Austin, is an incentive-based learning program which provides economically disadvantaged youth with the resources to build a strong academic future. The program serves 5,500 students in 40 Title 1 elementary and middle schools who are at higher risks of experiencing academic difficulties, including low grade performance, low performance on tests, low school attendance and higher rates of dropping out of school.

The program seeks UT Austin students to provide mentoring and tutoring in schools throughout the community. Whether they are helping with homework or helping to build self-esteem, UT students quickly learn how a little time and a few kind words can change a child's life.
