Thanks to the collective generosity of our shared community, last year, 31 low-income families in the East Bay received pro-bono educational consulting to evaluate their students’ academic needs and develop an individualized support plan. (Expert consultations like this carry a market value of $500 each.)

In 2017/18, your contributions funded scholarships for the following interventions:
  • focused support in reading acquisition for six elementary students to build a strong foundation in the most crucial skill of all: literacy;
  • content area tutoring in STEM and English for nine middle schoolers to strengthen core skills and support a successful transition to college-preparatory high schools;
  • tutoring across all content areas for eight high schoolers to support their path to graduation;
  • additionally, college exam preparation and college application guidance for three 12th graders to support a successful transition to college: all three graduated and are in college now;
  • evaluations for suspected learning disabilities to document the need for additional services by the school district and accommodations for high-stakes tests like the SAT/ACT plus in-person advocacy to support the families in school-based meetings.
