With a million teenagers dropping out every year, it is critical for America’s future that we find a way to inspire them to stay in school. We are convinced that we can be a part of the solution.
To address the most common reasons why children drop out:
- Loss of inspiration
- Loss of self-esteem.
- Loss of family support.
- Improve our children’s performance at school through a focus on the hard skills of the 3-R’s (Reading, wRiting & aRithmetic) in our tutoring sessions.
- Improve our children’s self-image through a focus on the soft skills of conscientiousness, perseverance and sociability.
- Improve our children’s ability to excel through a focus on life skills such as public speaking, problem solving and time management.
- Improve family support by providing incentives for them to stay involved in their child's success (i.e., stipends, vouchers, financial education, etc.).
