Our Mission

Recognizing that substantially fewer educational opportunities are available to students of low socioeconomic status than to their more privileged peers, Educational Justice endeavors to innovate and implement practical solutions aimed at closing the opportunity gap in education. Using these solutions, Educational Justice strives not only to expand the equalizing power of education to underserved students and their families, but also to end educational inequity by creating and inspiring a new generation of zealous advocates for social justice.

Educational Justice relies on the support of the community and of like-minded individuals to continue to provide life-changing opportunities for the students we serve. A donation to Educational Justice, whether of money or time, will ensure that our students receive the highest quality tutoring and that additional students will be able to participate in EJ programs.


A monetary contribution to EJ is the easiest and most helpful way to support us in our mission. Your donation helps pay for program costs that provide our students with excellent educators, course materials, and even transportation.
