THE LEAD PROGRAM

Eliminating Educational Inequity During the Hours Out of School
The Problem

The LEAD program’s mission is to alleviate educational inequity during the hours outside of school. We aim to provide high-quality educational services for children who need it. We believe that a quality education should be a basic human right and not that something only accessible for families with means.

Our program runs Monday – Friday serving children in under-resourced neighborhoods. We provide meaningful homework help, enrichment, as well as one-on-one tutoring. Our terrific team of teachers make sure that students are on track academically throughout the year. We are here to help.
