GOODProjects will launch one of the first CityTutor Hubs, tutoring students in the GOODZone in Ward 6, established in the largest public housing community in DC, within the James Creek, Syphax Gardens, Greenleaf, and smaller surrounding properties. This CityTutor Hub will recruit and train math tutors to supplement GOODProjects’ efforts to create safe spaces for remote learning.
Darius Baxter, Chief Engagement Officer at GOODProjects, said this partnership would support youth and their families in Southwest DC.
“By partnering with CityTutorDC, we can further enhance our GOODLearningHub in Ward 6 to provide our youth with more than just basic needs, but also unique experiences and opportunities they are not typically afforded due to poverty,” Baxter said. “Establishing a CityTutor Hub will allow us to continue lifting families from poverty.”
GOODProjects works to eliminate the roadblocks to basic needs so families can define their own version of success. The organization works diligently to provide wraparound services that give individuals the necessary tools for self-sufficiency. GOODProjects seeks to effectively lift 500 families from poverty by 2030 and break the cycle of poverty.
