A Safe Place to Learn

Powered by volunteers from NYC colleges and high schools, we match K-12 students experiencing housing insecurity with a trained tutor that they can have fun with. We are patient, adaptive, and ready for any situation. Our mission is to support the next generation of under-resourced curious minds early on educational track.

Any questions I have about my daughter Madisyn and how she's doing, they have been very supportive. They make any lesson fun, but challenging for her. Whenever Madisyn has a bad day, they are patient and are understanding of her needs and wants. They are very professional and bold with her, and I love the extended hours. I would  recommend Sparks Within Reach to anyone.

One hour a week. We provide training, support, and student matching.

Money or requested items. Simple, secure, and tax-deductible.
