Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, youth across the United States have been affected in more ways than one. Research has shown that students are failing two or more classes, lack the technology needed to access virtual learning, and the inability to connect with teachers for academic support. Also, there has been an increase in depression, anxiety, and suicide among underserved youth and teens, between the ages of 10 and 19. Our organization wants to help by providing mental and academic support while helping each youth and families we serve to thrive!

Students like Jason have been affected by more than not having a computer to attend virtual classes, but lack the confidence and want to stop going to school because he feels learning is too hard and trying to connect to class on the only device he has, a cellular phone is just too much to deal with every day. Your donation will help us purchase computers, keep mentors to encourage and maintain a weekly check-in with youth, help staff a licensed mental health team to train our mentors while supporting our youth and parents with interactive and preventative programs to help raise mentally healthier youth. We need more tutors to keep working with students one-on-one to reduces learning gaps. Help us help our youth thrive and succeed in spite current challenges.
