An American generation at risk needs the kind of help that only Peer Power can offer.  Today, Peer Power needs you.

MAKE A GIFT TODAY

Peer Power has made remarkable progress in helping hundreds of high school students improve their grades, graduate, and get ready for college.  These are young people attending schools in neighborhoods that besieged by serious economic and crime problems.  Right now, Peer Power is giving more than 1,000 students 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 approximately $50,000.  The current annual budget for the program is $1,750,000, 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.

Deidra M. Sanders

At age fifteen, I was introduced to Mr. Charles McVean and the Peer Power Foundation.  Peer Power provided my first job as well as endless opportunities throughout high school and college.  The Foundation set very high standards for me as a student, a tutor, and leader.  Peer Power taught me the value of not only excelling academically, but how to be a model citizen and consistently improve the whole person.  Through Peer Power, I learned the value of helping others and how to give back to the community in other ways.  Throughout my four years at Georgetown, I have made it my goal to give back to the community.  The high expectations set by Peer Power have aided me in achieving my goals in receiving a dual degree in International Politics and International Economics.  I will soon start a career in government sciences.  I know that I would not have made it this far without the direction given to me from Peer Power.
