We’re on a mission to bring fearless learning to students everywhere. We’re partnering with out-of-school time and afterschool programs, including The Boys & Girls Club and YMCA, to offer small group tutoring for enrolled students that is embedded into their regularly scheduled academic programming.
We’re on a mission to bring fearless learning to students everywhere and have expanded our highly popular Wheeling-based structured reading tutoring program to communities across West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. We’re partnering with out-of-school time and afterschool programs, including The Boys & Girls Club and YMCA, to offer small group tutoring for enrolled students that is embedded into their regularly scheduled academic programming.
You are worried that you’ll fail in delivering on meaningful outcomes for the students under your care. Worried that you’ll fail in helping students to graduate and go onto great futures.
We understand how it feels to have students struggling to read and do math. Like you, we’re frustrated by the lack of trained professionals available to help kids who are struggling in reading and math in afterschool programming.
Edge will offer a successful reading and/or math program within your organization delivered by expertly trained staff. Students in your program will have a changed perception of their potential and a higher belief in their ability to learn.
Students will read better and have more confidence at school.
Students will grow in their math skills, no longer saying “I’m bad at math.”
Dyslexia impacts an estimated 20% or more of students across our state. Combined with the significant learning interruption brought on by the pandemic, we have a crisis of epic proportions on our hands. Without foundational reading skills, students risk falling behind in school with dire long-term outcomes. The Edge program is one of the first efforts with the potential for statewide (and national) reach to make a real impact on dyslexia and reverse these dangerous trends for students. Our Boys & Girls Club is proud to be an early partner in this work and encourage other afterschool programs to join in the Edge movement.
One of our student’s teachers told her mom to let us know that she felt that the student was improving significantly on her reading. Another one of our Edge students got a certificate at the end of the year for being the most improved student in her grade. So this reading program does impact students and we want as many students to come as possible.
