By the end of fifth grade, low-income children are nearly three grades behind their more affluent peers, so FLOC works to mitigate the challenges, offering a continuum of support that guides students from first grade through college and beyond. It intentionally targets neighborhoods with the lowest reading and math levels, and FLOC’s one-to-one match approach (virtual since mid-March) provides two hours each of individualized support in reading or math or both every week. A college and career readiness program offers 14 weekly workshops – financial aid, school selection, admissions, stress and time management, and more – to prepare youth and families for success. Juniors and seniors get assistance with college and job applications, free test prep, personalized application support, and access to scholarship funds. At a time when traditional schooling has been upended, individualized support can make all the difference in the world.
