Why Do I Need To Learn This?

Making the connection between what you are learning at school and your future self can be difficult. Let us help you connect your passions and interests to what you’re learning in school. 


I didn’t know I’d be coming here until my dad brought me. My grades weren’t very good. I was going to fail some of my classes. I enjoy coming here, I get good snacks, I get help with my homework and my grades have gone up. Now I’ve got mostly As on my stuff. I have a 5-minute snack time at the beginning and then I get to work.

I Know what success feels like now

Math before was challenging. I felt bad because I thought I was going to fail the class. I needed help with math, English, and science. After coming to The Space, I got better at my homework assignments.

The SPace changed my habits

Since I’ve been coming to The Space, I’ve noticed I started developing habits of actually doing my homework at home and studying. That’s something I used to not do before coming to The Space. I realized that The Space was helping me when I saw how much my grades were improving in my Spanish homework. I saw my grades go from a 50 to almost a 90.
