Power 4 Youth has been making the difference in the lives of at-risk students through caring, consistent mentoring relationships since 1999. Over 350 at-risk, primarily low-income students have been served by volunteer mentors through Power 4 Youth.
We believe that all youth deserve individual guidance from a caring, knowledgeable adult to help them achieve their potential (in school and in the larger society).
Power4Youth provides site-based one-on-one academic mentoring for struggling students. Power4Youth helps at-risk middle and high school youth to do better in school by addressing the issues that are keeping the students from doing their best, and motivating them to be good citizens of the community. We are more than homework and tutoring: Mentors help students work on the broader issues that are affecting their grades. Be it study skills and time management or behavior issues or motivation and goal-setting, mentors help create strategies to overcome the challenges and build the skills necessary to be successful.
Power 4 Youth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency, Federal Tax Identification number 26-2887082.
