In January we support the Embudo Valley Tutoring Association
The Embudo Valley Tutoring Association (EVTA) was incorporated in 2004 as a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization to support Dixon Elementary, and strengthen the educational opportunities for children in the rural area surrounding the Rio Grande of Rio Arriba County in northern New Mexico. EVTA has provided continuous free tutoring and mentoring to children and youth of the Rio Grande and surrounding villages for since. EVTA provides free tutoring during the school day, after school, and during the summer. Beginning in 2010, EVTA began to stretch its resources and staff to serve children in other schools who needed reading interventionists, like Velarde Elementary and later, La Jicarita. In late 2016 EVTA began a partnership with the Anansi Charter School in Des Montes with students from both Arroyos del Norte and Anansi being served. It is EVTA's goal to extend its service offerings to as many children as it can reach. While the free tutoring services are available to students of any age, it has been the focus to help elementary children build a good foundation in reading, language arts and math skills so they can benefit from higher education.
