Tutoring | Mentoring | Empowering
Neighborhoods transformed through character development and academic success.
We want to see entire cities empowered through the avenue of neighborhood churches establishing a safe place of community while increasing literacy and practicing brave love that makes lasting impact.
Manatee County is in the bottom 20% of the state for student academic performance, and up to 40% of students are dropping out of school from some areas of Bradenton.
WE CAN HELP-
Roughly 50% of 3rd graders passed their reading FSA in Manatee County over the past several years. In Desoto County, only 34% of 3rd graders passed their reading FSA in 2019. These statistics directly impact addiction, crime, homelessness, and government assistance.
Avenue exists to stir churches to wage war on inaction and open its doors throughout the week to the lost among the next generation. Our desire is to see churches reach out to students in their neighborhood throughout the week to tutor and mentor public high school, middle school and elementary age children. We desire for the members of the church to adopt or foster homeless and orphaned children as well as be equipped to empower our students to have hope for their futures. We want to see entire cities advance through the avenue of neighborhood churches that establish a safe place of community while increasing literacy and making last impact to transform families and neighborhoods.
Our dream is that every area code, from 941 and beyond, will begin opening their church doors to students so that not one falls behind or feels lost and forgotten .
