Teacher and Student Support Resources
Community Forum and Live Podcast
The Ally program is a solution that addresses a root cause of academic issues--student's general lack of intrinsic motivation. Developing this internal mechanism early on can lead to positive sustained outcomes.
An Ally, assigned to a teacher and a class of students, will work in the classroom a few hours each week to assist the Instructor, then connect with students in the evenings. The Ally will encourage and motivate students to prepare for upcoming lessons, explore their own interests and academic pursuits, thus exercising the self-motivation muscle.
Inspiring Success is an interactive live forum for educators, parents, and community leaders to connect and discuss topics that impact our kids. These podcasts and discussions will address frequently asked and unasked questions, policies, and other emerging topics that can impact the lives of our children, and ultimately the future of our communities.
This safe space will help to motivate parents to become more active agents in their child's academic careers and better equip them to support their child's development.
