Since 1992, BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life) has worked to increase the academic achievements, self-esteem, and life opportunities of under-performing children living in low-income communities. BELL partners with public schools to provide summer and after school programs featuring academic instruction led by certified teachers and supported by highly-trained, dedicated tutors. BELL programs provide children with mentorship and a broad range of social enrichment activities to help them gain self-esteem and social skills. We help parents take on greater roles in their children's education, and rigorously evaluate program quality and outcomes to ensure children attain high levels of academic and social gains.
