About The Organization
The Russell Education Foundation's after school program supplements the standard school time for approximately 1,000 low income kindergartens through fifth grade students annually with state certified teachers to close the achievement gap over time in Title I Schools. The objective for each student is to make fundamental gains in reading, math and science throughout the school year and over the summer.
In addition to providing academic services, REF provides mentoring sessions that teach students life skills. Topics such as personal safety, financial literacy for kids, community service and cultural arts are integrated into guest talks. Community business professionals, local politicians and pro athletes volunteer visit the centers and share personal experiences of their education journey and how they overcame certain obstacles to achieve success.
Every child deserves an excellent education, and the support they need to succeed in school.
