Our Mobile Learning Lab Retired
This brilliant bus was a Literacy “Ice Cream Truck”. The Tutor Mobile traveled through local neighborhoods and provided books, story time, STEAM Kits, Access to WIFI, healthy snacks and tutors. Inspired during the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Tutor Mobile came about as a collaboration between The Shepherd’s Home, McCall Public Library and McCall Parks and Recreation as a means to bridge the economic, technology, and learning disparities for students impacted by distanced learning. The Tutor Mobile reached over 1,200 participants as of June 2022, in over 200 sessions, provided free back to school supplies, free bicycle maintenance, 22 new bicycle helmets, and transportation access to the McCall Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. This program helped many of our youth in McCall a healthy alternative during a trying time in our society. We are so thankful to the volunteers of this program and for our wonderful community who cam together to support our youth.
