Enrichment

Our mission is to reach and serve our entire city of Fremont and beyond. We have a dedicated team who are passionate about serving and loving our community. Our after-school, complimentary tutoring program is 100% free and offers educational enrichment for our students through fun and interactive activities. Our ESL offerings teach English as a second language to both adults and children. They are designed to enhance not only their English speaking & reading abilities but also focus on cultivating their cultural insights in order to help them assimilate into our society. Together, we strive to bring hope and light to our city through meaningful and purposeful ministries.
We are committed to your child's safety and well-being. Our program strictly observes the CDC health guidelines: all volunteer tutors are background-checked and vaccinated and all classrooms are sanitized before and after use. Staff and students will be required to wear masks at all times during tutoring sessions and students will be reasonably distanced within each classroom.
