Who We Are
Born out of the merger between Mentoring to Manhood, Inc. and Community Tutoring Inc.—two organizations in Prince George’s County highly regarded for positive outcomes in mentoring and academic gains, respectively—Community Youth Advance is an educational non-profit organization that provides extended-day learning, mentoring, and STEM-based summer experiences to students in grades K–12 of all learning levels, from underperforming to Honors and AP. Additionally, we offer training/professional development, SAT/ACT Prep, and special programs to aid our students in preparing for post-secondary college or careers. Community Youth Advance was born after two flagship organizations, Community Tutoring, Inc. and Mentoring to Manhood merged to expand their services and enlarge their student reach.
Why Choose Us
Our philosophy is not complicated. We merely believe with good, solid instruction from qualified teachers, all students can achieve. We employ research-based pedagogical methods that cater to the individual needs of each student, whether in one-on-one or small group settings. Beginning with high levels of expectation and student accountability, we meet students where they are academically and then provide them with the tools and support to help take them as far as they want to go. We understand that effective learning requires an entire community, including familial and school support. Our mentoring program is designed to address non-academic issues to support holistic development of our young boys.
We adhere to the operating principle that learning can and should be fun and engaging. We are committed to helping students reach their highest academic potential by bringing life and relevance to all curricula. We offer custom program/curriculum services to schools, non-profit organizations, businesses, and government entities.
