Our Mission


 Mission:  Provide an after-school, one-to-one tutoring program for elementary students that will supplement and support classroom learning, foster creativity and enhance literacy.

Vision We believe every child in the South End should have the opportunity to reach their full potential in order to obtain any goal to which they aspire.

Values:  Reading is Essential; One-to-One Tutoring Works; Every Child Has Worth. 

What We Do: 

We provide an after school, one to one, free, tutoring program for elementary school students in Albany’s South End to support and supplement classroom learning, foster creativity and enhance literacy.

We create a literacy-rich environment where tutors share one-on-one time with a child to master the skills of reading and writing, and problem-solving.  Our trained tutors welcome students into a safe space, with an imaginative theme. They build  strong, supportive relationships while sharing a love of reading. Through a variety of creative learning activities they practice reading, writing and problem-solving skills.
