Brain Builders is an after-school tutoring program focused on students whose families live at or below the poverty line. We currently serve seven (7) Elementary, Middle and High schools in Stafford County. We work in partnership with school counselors and teachers to identify students who need assistance and develop an individual tutoring plan. Students receive guided reading and math review, homework assistance, a nutritious meal, and TMO (Tide-Me-Over) bags to take home. TMO bags are a pre-packaged nutritious meal that will feed a family of four. We also provide optional STEAM classes for our middle and high school students. There is no cost to the family for this program. Due to the pandemic, the program is currently utilizing a hybrid model where middle school and high school meet in-person and elementary students are tutored virtually.
Brain Builders serves the following schools:
Our team of volunteers ranges from middle school students in the National Junior Honor Society to high school & college students to community volunteers and retired teachers.
Our Goal is to have each student with a 1-on-1 tutor/mentor within our program. The reality is that we need more volunteers to meet the needs of the current enrollment.
We want to thank those who have been supporters of Stafford Junction. Without your help our programs would not exist.
