Helping kids build better lives
mentoring/tutoring, after-school programming, individualized intervention, family assistance with examples of the programs which meet the needs.
Different kids have different needs. Some need academic help; some need a stable home and food on the table, or someone who will listen and help guide the way. Others just need a pair of eyeglasses.
Helping kids move beyond their circumstances requires an individualized approach, not one-size-fits-all. We treat young people as individuals and coordinate support around their specific needs.
Coordinated, individualized approach; it’s what makes us effective.
Our approach to communities is the same – different communities have different needs and priorities.
That’s why our services vary. Throughout the United States our services are a mix of the following:
Non-academic assistance: Connecting young people with a host of services — healthcare, housing, nutrition — resulting in students more 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 and academic support: Increasing academic performance and building confidence.
Family assistance & parent engagement: Ensuring children have a supportive home life, and that parents have access to the services they need.
Out-of-school enrichment & service learning: Strengthening the resiliency of children to succeed by expanding their understanding of what the world has to offer.
