What is The Leaven?
The Leaven works in partnership with members of the local community; including businesses, police and fire departments, local government, school administrators and teachers, church groups and concerned neighbors to bring after-school mentoring and tutoring programs as a revitalization tool to struggling neighborhoods where drop-out rates are out of control and gangs threaten the peace of the community. We believe in living out our Christian faith through after-school programs, community activities, family support and nurturing to our neighbors.
But we’re more than a
neighborhood tutoring center!
With the support of the entire community we bring hope and proven success through early education intervention — and inspire neighborhoods to rise up and take on their challenges together.
