Boost! West Oakland (formerly known as Lafayette School Mentoring Project) is a no-cost tutoring and mentoring program for K-5 students enrolled at Lafayette Elementary School in West Oakland. Since its inception in 1997, the program has served more than 1650 students.
Diverse, experienced tutors, who are carefully selected and matched to students' needs, provide weekly one-on-one tutoring in reading and math. Boost’s innovative approach is consistent, well-organized, and offers students continuous one-on-one support over a long period of time. Students attend the program for a minimum of once a week for an entire school year, and many students participate for five or six consecutive years and for more time each week. For many of the children this is the only time that they have such a high level of dedicated, positive attention from an adult, and the effect can be life-changing.
The mission of Boost! is to empower West Oakland youth with the skills and confidence needed to become positive contributors to society. Boost! West Oakland fosters healthy attitudes toward learning and strengthens students’ academic performance and self-esteem through individualized One-on-One Tutoring and Mentoring, Fieldtrips, and Family Events.
