Working together, we build relationships, deepen understanding and increase student success
PAGE (Partners for Achievement and Growth Through Education) is a volunteer program that connects UNC Asheville students, faculty, staff, and community partners to the Asheville City Schools through one-time projects, ongoing commitments, or academic service-learning courses. PAGE’s main goals are impacting student learning, supporting students and teachers, and building a impactful community both in schools and outside of schools.
“If you want to go quickly go alone. If you want to go far go together.”
How can you make a difference as a page partner?
Tutors work with children one-on-one or in small groups on a particular subject, typically math or literacy. They spend one or two hours per week with their students and help teachers reach students who might need extra help.
Classroom assistants are paired with a teacher/classroom to assist in a variety of ways: working in small groups, supporting individual students, and helping teachers with administrative duties such as making copies and distributing worksheets.
Mentors work with children one-on-one or in small groups, with a broad focus largely dependent upon the needs of the child. Mentors often delve into the realm of social-emotional learning, helping students navigate their past, present, and future school experiences.

Program providers offer special skills and programs to Asheville Middle School and Montford North Star Academy students in the IRL after-school program. Services have ranged from pottery and bike riding to engineering and acting.
