The Key to the Future
Education of our children is our #1 Priority.
Education transcends every aspect of our program from home work
assistance, mentoring, tutoring, life skills, travel exploration, to
our country store. Every student is positoned to gain valuable
academic knowledge and skills to help them become productive
and contributing members of society capable of proper decision
behavior. We also work to sharpen their communication, social and life
Our program works to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each
learner and establishes a people driven support system to help them
achieve goals and to overcome deficiencies. Unlike other programs,
students remain in our program long enough to achieve their educational
goals which is evidenced by our large number of high school graduates
All children are evaluated and tutored using
the Odyssey Ware Diagnostic Software Program.
Our mentors contribute to the success of our program by giving kids a
positive “friend” and role model they can trust!
Mentoring is offered to each student who has an absent or
dis-engaged parent. Mentors work one-on-one with the student to help
them broaden their view of the world and to challenge them to be the
“best” they can be. They become the cheerleaders of the
children they serve while Solid Foundation provides a supportive and
positive learning environment for each student to learn and thrive.
You don’t have to be a Rocket Scientist to be a tutor. All
you need is a heart for children and a good basic
Some of our best tutors are just ordinary people with average reading,
writing and arithmetic skills. Our tutors work one-on-one with our
students to ensure they master every subject and homework
assignment. Tutors commit to one hour per night two nights
a week. We actively recruit teacher’s, professors, and
community business leaders to join us in giving back and helping to
re-shape the future of one child. At the end of the day, we all get the
opportunity to “toot” our horn at the grades that go off
the charts... These are the future parents, mothers, fathers,
teachers, doctors, lawyers, politicians, principals of
Solid Foundation partners with community based organizations,
business owners, and professionals to incorporate life skills
programming into our curriculum. From teen pregnancy and prevention,
drug awareness, gang violence prevention and avoidance of other high
risk behaviors. Financial fitness including managing a savings account,
budgeting, identity theft are just a few issues covered in this phase
of our programming. Job readiness and emerging careers are also taught
during our summers. Our objective is to develop confident and
knowledgeable students with strong core beliefs and coping skills who
can function in their family, school and beyond.
