You Can Academy (YCA) focuses primarily on the academic success of elementary school age children attending Title 1 schools, through personalized after school homework help and tutoring from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. A nutritious meal is provided to each student, which in most cases is the last meal of the day that many of these children will receive. We partner with Jackson Elementary School to provide directed homework assistance to children at risk. Our goal is to be able to support 25 students. Our strategy is to connect adult volunteer mentors with students in need to provide them with the necessary tools to be successful in school as well as life. We feed the mind, body, and spirit!
