The biggest giving day on the globe is tomorrow!
Ignited Minds tutors have delivered more than 700 tutoring student session this academic year. We are on track to tutor more than 1,500 tutoring student sessions this academic year. We have tutored more than 1,500 tutoring sessions since our inception. Our students are on track to pass all their graduation required core classes for the first semester of this academic year. We NEED YOUR SUPPORT to continue to offer FREE tutoring to deserving and intelligent New Mexico students for the following reasons:
- Our public school system is ranked last in the nation. We want to improve our national ranking to 25th, then 10th, and then 1st place over the next 10 years.
- Our state graduation rate is 74.9%. We want to raise it to exceed the national rate of 88%. We want to help students graduate on time-within four years.
- Our students are ranked 49th in the nation for wellbeing due to intergenerational poverty and food insecurity. We want to help students end intergenerational poverty within their family systems by helping them to prepare for college and/or the workforce upon graduation from high school.
Ignited Minds wants to achieve these benchmarks with our personalized 1:1 and small group tutoring program. We tutors are invested in every student’s academic success, social emotional learning, and post-graduation prospects with college, vocational training or joining the workforce.
