ABOUT LEARN TO BE

Learn To Be is a non-profit bringing free, 1-on-1, online tutoring to underserved youth around the United States. We work primarily with K-12 foster youth, homeless youth, students on nutritional assistance and students from otherwise struggling families. 

We pair these students with volunteer tutors composed of high schoolers, college students, professionals and retirees. The two work a couple of hours a week, 1-on-1, on whatever the student needs help and for as long as the student needs the academic support. 

To date, we’ve hosted over 100,000 hours of tutoring, with 80,000 of those hours coming in the last two years as the pandemic has turned our education system upside down. And while COVID may be on its last leg, online education isn’t. 

We are funded for at least the next 5 years and ready to scale our organization. Come work with us and help to expand our platform to more underserved youth!
