The Day in the Life Program was established in 2002 in response to concerns about the academic progress of students in the Albemarle and Charlottesville communities. Since its inception, the program has reached thousands of students in schools and community agencies. To date, more than 5,500 U.Va. students have provided over 90,000 hours of tutoring and mentoring assistance to nearly 20,000 area youth.

Effective January 1,2014, the Day in the Life Program (DITL) transitioned from the University Communications Office to the Curry School of Education. The change in venue allows Curry to increase levels of student engagement and opportunities to support young people in K-12 settings

The Curry School is committed to expanding the reach of Day in the Life.  We will do so by aligning service learning experiences with education course requirements in curriculum and instruction, human services and education leadership courses.  Thus young people in schools and community agencies will interact with U.Va. students studying to become community workers, classroom teachers, and administrators in schools while also benefiting from support from U.Va. student groups committed to helping K-12 students.
