Educational Justice is a non-profit striving to end educational inequity by pairing 5th-8th grade students with high-achieving high school peers for long-term one-on-one tutoring and mentorship to improve their academic performance and social development.

We recognize that educational inequity is a challenge in communities everywhere. We are working to increase capacity to expand our mission to other areas of the United States but currently only serve students in the Louisville KY Metropolitan Area, and limited locations in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

It’s a lot more than just tutoring. [Brenda] really does feel like a little sister to me. I feel like I can help her with more than just school.
