Higher Achievement - Baltimore

  • 4 people are interested
Be a mentor!

Higher Achievement closes the opportunity gap during the pivotal middle school years. By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement’s proven model provides a rigorous 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.

We provide academic enrichment through a holistic approach grounded in social justice principles. Our afterschool program for 5th-8th grade scholars combines small-group, high-impact tutoring with social-emotional skill building, culminating in placement in college preparatory high schools.

Our incredible High School Readiness Mentors work with a small group of 5th-8th scholars as they gain awareness of high school, college, and career options. You will support them in taking steps to access those options through writing, reading, and critical thinking activities. No experience needed! Training, lesson plans, and activities will be provided. Mentors are needed once per week from approximately 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Our program is based in several schools in the city:
Highlandtown Elementary-Middle School (6820 Fait Avenue Baltimore Baltimore, MD 21224) or Mt Royal Elementary Middle School (121 McMechen St, Baltimore, MD 21217)

If interested, please submit an application at https://higherachievement.formtitan.com/ftfed620701540763402082#/ and we’ll be in touch!

Mission Statement

Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. We envision a world where all students' potential and promise is realized, regardless of their circumstances. Higher Achievement closes the opportunity gap during the pivotal middle school years. By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement’s proven model provides a rigorous year-round learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations, resulting in college-bound scholars with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed.

Description

Higher Achievement is a non-profit organization that helps underserved middle-school students, referred to as "scholars", improve their grades, attendance, and standardized test scores, culminating in acceptance to top high schools in Baltimore. Higher Achievement delivers year-round, rigorous academic programming that yields outstanding outcomes.

During the scholars' four years in Higher Achievement, they study social-justice oriented curricula; work with mentors weekly; self select enriching elective courses; and participate in academic contests, university stays, and academic field trips. Higher Achievement's strong network of mentors is instrumental to the success of its program.
