In this YouTube video then-Senator Barack Obama talks about the success of the Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ), a program he plans to help replicate the programs success in other 20 major cities throughout the U.S.
The HCZ Model is similar to the "Educational Ecosystem" that THINK Together is developing around, and in alignment with, neighborhood schools.
THINK Together is serious about helping kids achieve!
THINK Togetheris making a difference in the lives of more than 100,000 California students. The non-profit organization's trained staff, dedicated volunteers and generous donors are providing extended learning time programs (after-school, summer learning, small group tutoring, early literacy, etc.) and resources to help these kids, their families and their communities achieve. Our programs, generally free for at-risk students and low-income families, are predominately available at public school sites across Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and now Sacramento Counties.
