Our award-winning Outbound Learning program seeks to combine the academic support and one-on-one mentoring of Homework Club with opportunities to expand students’ horizons beyond their own neighborhood. Students are bused to participating corporate and community partner sites, where they are mentored by employee volunteers. This program exposes students to a variety of professional environments and potential career paths, while simultaneously providing them with one-on-one academic support and meaningful relationships with mentors.
Outbound Learning Partners: Each partner program has its own educational focus and dedicated staff to coordinate logistics. We are extremely grateful for all of the time, energy, and resources our partners contribute to makes Outbound Learning a unique and enriching experience for our students!
