Mission Statement

Believe*Achieve Program is sponsored by the Saint Paul Public Schools Foundation and is a school-based tutoring program. Believe*Achieve allows volunteer tutors to join the effort to eliminate the achievement gap in Saint Paul by giving one hour a week as a tutor in a school. All tutoring programs are coordinated by national service members sponsored through the Foundation.
