The mission of Encourage Tomorrow is to provide quality educational programs that empower students and families to become resilient and maintain healthy lifestyles. Its vision is to prepare children for successful and healthy lives and embrace a sense of pride in their culture and community.
The goal of our Supplemental Educational Services program is to bring each child up to and beyond grade level in the areas of English Language Arts (reading, writing and comprehension) or math. During the 2008-2009 school year, 85% of the students who completed the program improved by at least one grade level in English Language Arts and math.
Encourage Tomorrow offers college preparation and career readiness programs for participating students enrolled in Intermediate and High School. The programs are designed to cultivate higher ambition through exposure to and preparation for higher education or, leading to career-oriented young minds. This focus on education is aimed at the many students who are the first in their families to pursue college. The programs foster self-awareness and self-esteem, and encourage active participation in life-planning and goal-setting. Direct work experience and internships are arranged with local businesses to allow students an opportunity to apply their newly-learned skills from the program.
