Mentoring and Tutoring Program

Siewersden Lab 3.jpg

The goal of the Mentoring and Tutoring Program…

is to enlighten students about the college application process, financial aid, course selection, homework help & other topics as deemed necessary.

We want to provide homework help as well as fortify students’ confidence in their own academic abilities.

Why this program?

There is a large number of Latinx youth who remain unaware of how to navigate high school in preparation of higher education or other post-secondary opportunities. As a result, we see a large number of Latinx youth with promising futures miss opportunities to apply for scholarships, employment, and colleges simply because they did not know what is available to them or what they qualify for.
