An American generation at risk needs the kind of help that only Peer Power can offer. Today, Peer Power needs you.
Peer Power has made remarkable progress in helping hundreds of high school students improve their grades, graduate, and get ready for college. Right now, Peer Power is giving more than 5,000 students, 120 teachers and 5 schools (Whitehaven, East, Kingsbury, Douglas and Ridgeway) much more than good grades and college counseling. It’s giving them hope.
Most importantly, Peer Power is scalable and replicable. With the commitment of the administration, faculty, and students, the program can be adapted to fit practically any existing public school in communities of any size – as long as funds are available to support it.
The average annual cost of successfully running Peer Power in a single school for a full year is $750 per student based on a school of 1000 students. The current annual budget for the program is approachingg $4,000,0000, which includes payments to tutors and regular third-party evaluations to ensure our program's effectiveness. The program's administrative and overhead costs are entirely covered by our existing contributions. Your support will go where it can make the most difference - directly to our scholars and tutors. New contributions will accelerate the progress we have been making over the past eight years while improving the academic performance of many more young people in more schools.
