What We Do

Non-Academic Assistance

Helping with basic needs like healthcare, nutrition or clothing so young people are better prepared to learn.

One-to-One Mentoring

Instilling the confidence to succeed, the belief that education creates opportunity, and setting the expectation for success.

Tutoring

Young people who fall behind often stay behind. We help kids catch up and stay ahead.

Family Involvement

Ensuring children have a supportive home life, increasing parent-school involvement, and helping parents access the services they need.

Preparing for the Future

Students build leadership and life skills, explore college and career options, and understand how their education is connected to their financial future.

College and Career Readiness

Site coordinators take students on college visits and link students to career experiences and internships.
