Education



Foundation Communities provides on-site education programs for children, teens and adults. We help put students on a lifelong path to success.

Beginning with early childhood education for 3- to 4-year-olds, children and teens have access to year-round academic support through our after-school and summer learning programs, while our adult education opportunities empower parents to improve their language and literacy skills and truly transform their families’ lives.

 

We offer after-school and summer learning programs for 700 children and teens who earn, on average, a 3.4 GPA.



Meet Andrea

Andrea and her daughter found the support they needed to dream big at M Station. Andrea successfully completed Free Minds, a college humanities course for adults who have faced barriers to education, and her daughter got one-on-one help with homework and participated in structured enrichment activities through our after-school program.
