The Family Learning Institute seeks to close the achievement gap in Washtenaw County. We believe that all students, regardless of life circumstance, deserve the chance to forge the skills they need to build the lives they dream.
The Family Learning Institute (FLI) is a non-profit, volunteer-based educational organization that helps young people improve their reading, writing, math, and thinking skills. FLI works exclusively with low-income, academically underperforming 2nd-5th graders in Washtenaw county. Students are paired with one adult volunteer tutor for the entire school year, developing an educational and mentorship relationship; our professional teaching staff (Elementary Reading and Math Specialists) provide all the training and materials necessary to target our students' specific areas for growth. Each student in our program attends a two-hour session, once a week, half of which is spent working one-on-one with their tutor and the other half of which is spent working on writing or math application skills in small groups.
