Black Women In Jazz- Education & Fine Arts Youth Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created to assist in meeting the literacy, educational and creative needs of our youth ages 3-21.  We believe that all children are capable of success when one on one support is given to address their particular learning and developmental needs.  Our concentration is on youth development in core subjects such as Reading, Math, Science, and Writing, as well as training/workshops in the areas of Technology, Engineering, Environmental, Nutrition, and Fine Arts.  We believe this will help our youth to become confident in their learning abilities and strengthen our communities.  The importance of children's early literacy development cannot be overstated.  Children's success in school and later in life is dependent upon their ability to read and write effectively.

Our goal is to take what your child is learning in their classrooms and enhance that knowledge by taking the time to get know them and their individual needs. The result is that the student will excel in their classrooms and become confident, self-sufficient and focused learners.  Literacy development is crucial to the quality of life in diverse communities throughout the United States as well as globally.

Tutors are certified teachers and  are carefully chosen because literacy and youth development is vital and they want to do more than just tutor your child. They share a love for teaching, and a commitment to support, encourage and educate each and every student. Our tutors are teachers and are members of your own community and teach in the local schools. Our tutors understand the local school's curriculum and can better link their lessons with what's being taught in school.
