OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19

PARENTS PLEASE READ

COVID-19 has affected our schooling system, and hence our future, in an unprecedentedly dynamic manner.

About 50+ million children have witnessed their school system flip upside down. School districts were ordered to switch to remote learning almost overnight. Parents are struggling to fulfill the role of being a teacher at home in addition to working and their other responsibilities.

 

We were all aware about achievement gaps and this interruption to constant exposure to an academic climate will serve as a great disadvantage now and when schools start up again. Before we were concerned about class sizes and the affect that it had on students getting the individualized academic help that they needed from their teachers. Parents now have to manage their children's schedules and give them that desperately needed educational attention.

 

This can easily become a really big problem in homes with parents who are essential workers, working during school hours, parents who are unfamiliar with content, and even parents who do not speak or read English. We are witnessing an educational crisis.

Our team has been working hard to maintain our program to strict virtual platforms in regulation with social distancing. We realize the importance of the actions that need to be taken to keep your child on track. Zoom will be used to hold tutoring session, leadership building activities, and other clubs and interactions. We will be sure to maintain the enriching environment that we have always provided for our youth.

Thank you.

Enhancing the Lives of Children and Equipping Them for Leadership

At More Than Potential, we believe that children are the very essence of the future. Who they are tomorrow is essentially the outcome of how they are raised and nurtured today. As a newer Youth Organization, we go above and beyond to continue to provide our youth an empowering environment where they can fully embrace their identity and gain all the skills they need to be leaders tomorrow.

OUR MISSION:

To strengthen students and schools in underserved communities by providing academic support, social support, and mentorship to bolster college and career preparedness.

OUR VISION:

We hope to decrease the disparities in our underserved schools by empowering our youth with the philosophy that knowledge is power. It is our duty to ensure that all children have access to an environment that will nurture and supplement their in-school learning. Equipping growing youth with academic skills, life skills, and preparedness for the college and/or career pathways is vital to successes in our communities.This investment will yield ambitious leaders in the future of our economy that will fuel positive generational progression towards a better world. 

 

Our goal is to shape the mindset of the way our youth absorb the world and critically make sense of it all. Curious to find out more about us and how you can get involved? Browse our website and get in touch with us today.
