Vision and Mission

Our Vision

ALL students (grades K-12) are more academically accountable, competitive, and personally fulfilled as they progress through these crucial years.

Our Mission

ALO develops and distributes community based, sustainable systems (programs and materials) that provide additional beyond-the-school-day academic support. Our programs and materials focus on academics, building relationships, and the positive protective factors that enable students to meet or exceed state standards, graduate from high school, and be better prepared for the workforce or college.

Our Goals

Academic Link Outreach (ALO) acts as a voice to educate the public about the need to provide beyond-the-school-day academic support for struggling students mainly BIPOC, low income, foster and homeless.

 
EDUCATION

Educates students, parents, and communities about the significant impact academic success will have on their future.

POSITIVITY

RESEARCH

Researches and analyzes existing data and current “beyond the school day” support systems and learning environments which are totally data based.

PROGRAMS

Promotes programs which connect students with role models to teach the value of education and how to thrive in a challenging learning environment.

SUPPORT
