Mission Statement

To empower at-risk youth and adults by expanding access to Technology and developing skills in Mathematics and Finance, while maximizing their creative abilities through social, civic, and professional opportunities.

Description

Each One Teach One Literacy is a nonprofit organized exclusively for educational purposes. It provides supplementary instruction in Math and Technology as well as life skills to low-income and underachieving youth in inner city Chicago. Additionally, the organization provides GED/TABE Math Readiness and Financial Literacy classes to the underemployed adult for job acquisition and/or school advancement.

The organization seeks to provide community members with opportunities for advancement through exposure to technological career paths, college student mentors, caring instructors, life skills workshops, leadership opportunity, accountability learning and through masterful understanding of Math, Technology and Finance. We accomplish this through our three programs: After School Youth Tutoring, Social Innovation Program (Youth Development) and Adult Education Courses.

Our successes have been touching lives and helping to mend personal and professional issues of those serviced. Participants and family members praise the efforts of Each One Teach One Literacy and, often times, come back to volunteer their time to recreate the change they experienced with future groups of community participants.

Each One Teach One Literacy and those serviced believe that young people and under served adults have a voice and possess power. It is our responsibility to ensure they feel confident, empowered, and encouraged to affect the kind of change necessary for their futures and ours.
