Volunteers In Communities Tutoring Our Responsible Youth (VICTORY)
VICTORY offers free tutoring to students in grades 1–12 at designated branches of the Austin Public Library. Students are matched with volunteers from the greater Austin community. The student/tutor pairs meet at regularly scheduled sessions in the library for a minimum of an hour each week to work on homework assignments and skills for which the student needs extra reinforcement and practice. Tutoring sessions are held in the late afternoon or early evening Monday through Thursday.
Face to face tutoring sessions will be offered at the following locations:
Carver Branch Library
1161 Angelina St.
Little Walnut Creek Branch Library
835 W. Rundberg Ln.
Tutoring will be held Monday – Friday from 3:50 – 7:50 pm.
Programming start date is September 5, 2023.

Started in 1982, VICTORY grew out of the Carver Branch Librarian's desire to help students achieve success in school by providing a homework center staffed by community volunteers. By the late 1980's, the Oak Springs and University Hills branches also had homework centers. In 1992, the Austin Public Library received a VISTA grant to provide coordination support for the centers, and the VICTORY Program was officially established. Now in collaboration with AISD Department of Student Support Services, student and tutor participation in the program has grown steadily.
