About

Success Academy is middle school after school program which is an extension of the Family Learning Institute's regular reading and math program offered to 2nd through 5th graders. After 5th grade, our students either graduate or age out. Success Academy is offered to these students to help guide them as they transition to middle school.

Mission: Success Academy provides academic enrichment and social skill building to sixth grade students, empowering them to become successful middle school students on the path to high school and college.

Goal: Through workshops, homework help, and guest speakers - students will learn the importance of:

  • Peer interaction
  • Positive communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Leadership
  • Team building
  • Goal setting
  • Time management
  • Stress managment
  • Study skills
  • Career development and more!

When: October-April - Every Thursday from 5:30-7:30pm (1 hour of workshop, 1 hour of homework help)
Where: University of Michigan - Ginsberg Center 1024 Hill Street, Ann Arbor MI 48109

We are looking for high school and college volunteers to help our students during their hour of homework time. No experience necessary! Just a positive attitude and willingness to help with middle school homework!

As a volunteer, you would have the opportunity to work in small groups or one-on-one with students while they work on their school homework. You would serve as a positive role model and mentor to our students as they navigate middle school and prepare for high school and college. We ask that you come every Thursday from 6:30-7:30pm.

This is a wonderful experience for our students, and they look forward to working with high school and college students!
