Who We Serve

Middle school is a time where many young people start to lean into their influences and, for the first time, look to what their futures may hold. Success in middle school is directly linked to future academic aspirations, in high school, college, and beyond. We specifically target middle schoolers because we understand that children at these age levels (10 – 13 years old, on average) are more readily able to overcome issues affecting academic success. Our goal is to use mentors and tutors to change the way struggling students view their education and possibilities, setting them on a brighter, more fulfilling path.
