Educational Programs



After School Tutoring Program


ADROP sponsors an after-school program at the Augustinian Grammar School of St. Anthony of Padua located in the St. Nicholas of Tolentine Parish in South Philadelphia. Tutoring is held two days a week, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with hope of expansion. Volunteers in the after-school tutoring program work with children who need help with homework, studying, and skills which need improvement. ADROP's Administrative Coordinator facilitates the after-school program.

       In the past we have worked with the Rays of Sunshine Program at Villanova University and we are grateful for their years of service to St Nick's.
