About ECF Community Center

The E.C.F.Community Center is an after school tutoring educational enrichment program for all at-risk elementary age children who live in our inner-city community. The program is designed to demonstrate that the trend of poor student achievement can be reversed and that all students can master academic standards if they are given time, support, and instruction that focuses on their academic needs.

About Our Tutors

Our tutors are the heart of the program.  Tutors work with students individually or in small study groups and offer tutoring as well as friendship, encouragement, and guidance.  The Tutoring Program focuses the efforts of teachers on the diagnosed academic needs of students and harnesses the energies of tutors and learning assistance staff to reinforce the teachers' efforts.  

The relationship that develops between tutors, teachers and students provides the kind of guidance, support and inspiration necessary for their future success.  One caring person can make a difference in a young person's life.
