Mission Statement

The mission of Masa is to promote educational attainment, committed leadership and civic engagement among underserved students living in New York City with a particular focus on those of Mexican descent. Through a variety of civic and educational partnerships, Masa provides positive guidance and support for underserved youth and their families. We encourage program participants to strive to their fullest potential by setting and achieving academic goals in our tutoring and mentoring program. Furthermore, by fostering cultural and civic awareness, we empower a future generation of active and involved citizens.


Masa provides after-school and mentorship services to students of Mexican descent living in or near the South Bronx. The organization relies heavily on the work of volunteers to serve the varied needs of students involved in the program.

It was a wonderful time volunteering, but their organization and communication can be improved.

They're awesome! And the children are wonderful and bright.

This organization is well-organized, and your volunteer time is flexible, but most of all, you can feel the impact on the teenager's life as you help them to negotiate the difficulties of life in high school. It's personal, and all the people who want a mentor in this program are very personable. A great time with great kids! Two thumbs up!
