Project objectives & needs

The Neighbourhood Organization (TNO) is providing free and accessible educational support twice a week to 7-12-year-old children via their after-school virtual tutoring program. Most participating families are new to Canada and face socioeconomic and language barriers. This poses a significant challenge for parents looking to support their children with educational goals.

Our program helps students improve their reading, writing and math skills through virtual sessions so they can achieve academic success.
