With the help of an all-volunteer team, the idea came to life. In the fall of 2004, PV piloted a drop-in homework tutoring program in borrowed space in the Chinatown Library and the Boys and Girls Club in Bridgeport, serving 20-30 students each week. Since then, PV has reached over 1,100 youths with free after school programs including tutoring, college and career readiness workshops, service learning, and leadership training.
Project: VISION kicks off its first summer camp program for 5th-9th graders. The program offers engaging activities and lessons in art, culture, coding, and more to help kids build their individual strengths, develop skills, gain confidence and positive attitudes that help them succeed in school and beyond.
Project: VISION opened a second site that primarily houses the High School Scholars Program. The programs provided include tutoring, mentoring, college and career readiness, service learning, and leadership training. Our goals are to guide and support youth as they work toward their educational goals while also building confidence, character, positive attitudes, and essential skills that prepare them for the workplace and as engaged citizens in their communities.
