We believe academic advising and tutoring can lift at-risk students into a new life.

Tutoring Towards A Better Life is a non-profit organization geared towards pairing top-tier, experienced tutors and college counselors with at-risk youth who are unable to pay for services. 

The organization was founded by Troup Wood, who, after teaching English inside juvenile halls in Los Angeles, saw the need for more educational opportunities and support after students return home. 

Our goal is to reduce recidivism (returning to Juvenile Hall) and to help students tap into their own motivation and potential. With the right tools, support, and guidance, these students will have a shot at a life they never dreamed possible. And the heartbreaking cycle of returning to juvenile hall -- or worse, returning to a gang or homelessness -- can finally be ended. 

We need tutors and college application consultants! Please scroll down for more information.
