Virtual Tutoring & College Application Support for Philadelphia Students with Housing Insecurity

January 23, 2023

The Satellite Learning Program through The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND) is offering free virtual tutoring for School District of Philadelphia K-12 students who qualify under McKinney-Vento. Tutors can also assist with SAT/ACT prep or navigating the college admissions process. Tutors are all current college students, mostly attending the University of Pennsylvania.

Please note only students who qualify under McKinney-Vento are eligible. This is any student whose living situation is not fixed, regular, or adequate which can mean everything from living in a shelter to being doubled up with family in overcrowded housing. If you are unsure if the student qualifies please reach out to or visit
