Play and Catch-Up (After School Tutorial Program)

Education | Aug 25, 2019 | Volunteer Event

One of the projects of PAC is the Play And Catch-up (PCU) program every Sunday. This program is designed for the group of learners that needs literacy enhancement the most. They come from different grade levels but they are homogenized by common limitations as identified during the diagnostic examination.

Progressive Assistance Canada (PAC) is a Canadian-based Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) operating in the Philippines, seeking to alleviate the cycle of poverty in the most vulnerable and disenfranchised Filipino Barangays (communities). Addressing the root causes of the cycle of poverty, our programs are based on holistic systems-based approaches towards sustainable development.

By using an alternative teaching tool: play, our goal is to create a safe and fun learning environment where students can catch-up with the Filipino school curriculum. We believe this program will give students a much greater chance of future success in the workforce and onto post-secondary education, by reducing drop-outs among this poor segment of the Filipino society.

PCU takes place every Sunday morning, beginning with hygiene education and practices, and a healthy breakfast provided by Thrive Global, followed by games, songs and plays, all in support of learning. Where required, students are offered one-on-one tutoring. PCU enhances the Filipino school curriculum through bridging of knowledge gaps. We also believe in developing future community leaders: our most learned students are offered peer-teaching opportunities to enrich their own leadership skills.


We are always looking for kind, patient, and dynamic volunteers to assist our grades 1-11 students improve and solidify their literacy and numeracy skills. Join us and volunteer to help us. We need 15 volunteers to assist, teach, story tell, document activities, conduct games and other activities for the kids, among others.


Provide in-kind donation like old clothes and toys, storybooks and school supplies - anything useful will be appreciated.

Be our partner in teaching the kids every Sunday.
