I am a tutor for Upward Scholars. US is a very well-organized foundation and I recommend it without hesitation to anyone who is interested in volunteering as a tutor and/or anyone who is looking to donate money to a quality organization that is both helping those in need and allowing of us to live in a better-educated and happier community.

I've attended several Conversation Clubs hosted by Upward Scholars, and left so energized each time. I saw first hand how my time made a difference, so it was a no brainer to also make a small donation. I like supporting local organizations who are helping people in need right in our community. These adult students are inspiring and deserving!
