El Arco Iris is an after-school program in Holyoke, an urban, working-class and predominately Puerto Rican community. The youth at the program range from ages 5 to 17. Amherst College tutors help the youth with homework, lead workshops for the youth to partake in, organize visits to Amherst College and, most importantly, present themselves as role models for the youth. Tutors must commit to two weekdays from 2:40-6. Transportation is provided.
