The success of our afterschool literacy program relies heavily on the personalized support we offer our students.
This personalized support comes from a low, 4 to 1 student teacher ratio. Each Starting Gate Class room has one certified teacher and numerous teaching interns, depending on the class size.

Each year the Race For Education offers 20 – 30 teaching internships for the Starting Gate.
The minimum requirement is for 1 semester, 2 afternoons per week for 2 hours.
