Higher Achievement closes the opportunity gap during the pivotal middle school years. By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement’s proven model provides a rigorous afterschool learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations, resulting in college-bound scholars with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed. 

Higher Achievement’s model delivers academic enrichment through a holistic approach grounded in social justice principles. Our afterschool program for 5th-8th grade scholars combines small-group, high-impact tutoring with social-emotional skill building, culminating in placement in college preparatory high schools. 

Mentors work with a small group of 5th-8th scholars as they gain awareness of high school, college, and career options. You will support them in taking steps to access those options through writing, reading, and critical thinking activities. No experience needed! Training, lesson plans, and activities will be provided. Mentors are needed once per week from approximately 5:30-6:30 p.m. Our program is based in several schools in the city—sites are listed on the application form below, and we’ll work with you to figure out which location is the best fit for you. 

If interested, submit an application at https://higherachievement.formtitan.com/ftfed620701540763402082#/ and we’ll be in touch!
