Falling behind in school is a major obstacle for any child to overcome, as is living in an at-risk neighborhood, that’s why each of our centers provides hundreds of hours of free homework help, academic enrichment, and mentoring to children. Kids come to The Leaven so they can learn, play, and grow, away from crime and other negative influences that surround their neighborhoods.
Our tutoring programs have proven to help students to excel academically. We align our curriculum with each school’s reading programs so students have a seamless transition from the classroom to our after-school sites. Tutors also act as mentors, who work with students to improve their reading comprehension, math skills, and help them complete their homework.
