Close the opportunity gap for middle school students! Be a Mentor!

We are in need of Mentors and Study Hall Aides at our Achievement Center in Alexandria. The commitment is one evening per week, Monday or Tuesday; Study Hall Aides- 4:00-6:00pm, Mentors- 6:00-8:00pm.

100% of Higher Achievement graduates finish high school, and 93% go on to college. In a city where 59% finish high school and only 9% get a college degree, these results are astounding - and desperately needed. Higher Achievement is creating lasting change in the lives of youth - and you can be a part of that change in the DC Metro area!

By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement’s proven model provides a rigorous summer and afterschool learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations, resulting in college-bound scholars with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed. Scholars commit to 4 years of the program, and are committed to their academics.
