City Youth Inc. continues to focus on bridging the gap and ensuring that resources are available to youth in communities we serve. Many of these children do not have the supplementary academic resources in their neighborhoods to foster reinforcement or acceleration.
Providing Math Tutoring and Enrichment to local youth is one of our goals. We seek to bring some of the area’s most passionate college students and professionals to a community of youth and help foster an understanding and love for Mathematics. Improving our academic participant’s performance is our number one goal.
We are currently seeking parent/teacher referrals for children in the following grades, to participate in our academic enrichment program for children grades 3rd - 12th:
