  • Programs that train, tutor, and mentor students to enhance academic excellence and achievement
  • Programs that foster a love of reading for youth in the communities we serve
  • Youth development activities designed to equip elementary students with skills necessary to pass State-mandated tests and enhance reading and math comprehension, prevent teenage pregnancies, introduce middle school girls to diverse career options, and encourage high school graduation and enrollment in postsecondary education programs
  • Health and educational services and social activities for senior citizens
  • Events to promote economic and financial literacy to all age groups in the community
