Tutoring

LETS GO Partners 

with schools, youth organizations, and other non-profits, in historically under-resourced communities to provide STEM learning experiences for youth and workshops for instructors.

For data evaluation, LETS GO partners with the Partnerships in Education and Resiliance (PEAR), Inc.  LETS GO provides certain students the PEAR student survey once per year and PEAR uses data collected from the survey to produce statistical data.  LETS GO and PEAR also partner for evaluation of instructor survey data.

 

Collective Impact

Given the systematic nature of generational poverty, it is clear that no one organization can effectively address all the contributing factors. However, there is great promise in the Collective Impact (CI) movement, in which many organizations work together to provide a wide range of interventions and support within a community.  LETS GO is working to implement CI partnerships to provide programs along the pathway from cradle to career.
