After-School tutoring

offers students ages 6-18 help with writing and homework of all kinds, and much, much more. Students also have the opportunity to work together in writing and storytelling clubs, focus on individual projects, and learn from visiting guest writers, artists, and experts. Our overall approach, along with focused activities, nurtures emotional awareness, elevates creative voice, and builds a strong community.

 

We provide a space in the day where students find the support to face challenges, try something new, grow from setbacks, learn from feedback, and share in each other's success. Students are invited to participate in group discussions, build meaningful friendships, set goals (personal and academic) and make decisions about the path they'll take to get there. Fearless Ideas sees unknown potential worthy of exploration in every student and is by their side for all the struggles and triumphs that hard work brings.

"This isn't just a place to do homework, it's a place to be: 

to be yourself, be a friend, or be part of a community."

–Keziah, Grade 6

Our Program Managers are experienced educators practicing Social and Emotional Learning and the tenets of Growth Mindset. They draw on the whole of the Fearless Ideas community, which includes the active participation of families and the help of trained volunteers. Ultimately, the success of our After-School Tutoring program relies on students who bring a genuine desire to learn and a commitment to be kind, creative, and fearless.

 

Yearly

ENrollment

Enrollment

OPEN spots are Very LIMITED

Because this program is popular, we are only able to enroll a handful of new students as spots open up. Limited enrollment benefits students by allowing us to provide a focused learning atmosphere, set long-term goals, and maintain an ideal student/tutor ratio.

To enroll your student in after-school tutoring:

Submit an

INTEREST FORM

Submitting an interest form does not reserve a spot nor guarantee student enrollment. However, with your interest form on file, we're able to notify you if a spot opens up. If a spot does not open up this year, be sure to fill out a new interest form for the next year.

Fill out an

APPLICATION

When a spot opens up, you'll be asked to fill out an application. At this time, we'll also schedule a family meeting within the coming two weeks. Either email the completed application ahead of time, or bring it with you to your family meeting.

Attend a

FAMILY MEETING

This gives us a chance to get acquainted and review your application together. We'll also discuss your student's goals, our expectations for family support, and consider if some of the other programs we offer might also benefit your student's needs.

About our High School

Youth Advisory Board

Youth Advisory Board

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

from different neighborhoods and schools form our Youth Advisory Board (or YAB). Together they earn their community service credit through working to make a difference, and by acting as ambassadors of Fearlessness throughout the community. They might collaborate as an editorial board for one of our publications, organize and execute a day of service, make documentary films, attend special cultural events, lead a creative writing club, or act as dutiful consumers of donated pizzas.
