For many students in our program, barriers to academic success come in the form of poverty and the struggle of learning English as a second language. Your participation as a tutor will make a significant change in their lives. The personal attention that our students get from one-on-one tutoring will help them excel academically, graduate high school, and pursue a journey that will help them break free from the cycle of poverty. If you're ready to make an impact, please refer to the information below!
