COVID related policy follows Pontiac School District, and masks/hand sanitizer are always available to students and volunteers.

Mission Statement

Bound Together’s mission is to nurture self -worth and academic growth for Pontiac elementary school students, creating a caring community among our families and volunteers.

Description

For 25 years, Bound Together has welcomed, nurtured and encouraged all who are part of its fabric, providing tutoring and nutrition services at no cost to families. We are entrusted with children who are actively working toward improving their academic skills, and who also form strong bonds with each other and the adults who support them during our time together. Bound Together is in session after school every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with multiple one-hour volunteer roles available from 3:30 - 6:00 PM throughout the school year. After every tutoring session the children enjoy a hot meal. The success of the program is a direct result of caring volunteers who give of themselves as an investment in the life of a child.
