A space where students feel welcome, a program to spark their ambitions.

 

Students are given a lens through which to envision their future in new roles they otherwise might not have imagined. 

Our team of adult mentors, tutors, instructors, and case managers helps empower students through a comprehensive after-school and summer program that facilitates each student to not only succeed, but fulfill their own American Dream.

 

 

Extending the learning day.

 
 

FOR MANY OF OUR STUDENTS, THE PROGRAM INVOLVES 15 ADDITIONAL HOURS A WEEK IN ENGLISH, EXTENDING THEIR LEARNING DAY BY 50%.

 

A week in the life of an Enroot student:

 

Increasing self-confidence and doubling the college graduation rate.

STUDENTS GRADUATE COLLEGE AT TWICE THE RATE OF THEIR PEER GROUP, WITH SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN SELF-CONFIDENCE AND SELF-ADVOCACY, HAVING DISCOVERED UNIQUE SKILLS AND TALENTS.

 
 
When I first joined the program…I had almost given up on my education. [Enroot] opened up a way for me and I was able to see that anything was possible if I kept doing my best and not giving up.

Measuring success from around the world.

 
 

THE JOURNEY FOR A FAMILY TO THE UNITED STATES IS FILLED WITH HOPE AND PROMISE. 

It can also be complex, with the uncertainty of leaving an environment that is understood, for one that is unreliable or indifferent. Through our program we ease this transition by helping students set strong roots and promoting their education so their hopes and dreams will become a reality.
