Bridging academic and emotional gaps in the lives of children.

Minding the Gap comes alongside children to bridge gaps that all too often exist in their academic and emotional formation. We strengthen children in their academic and emotional journey by teaching reading skills, by building self-esteem, and by promoting healthy connections to caring adults. We proactively identify and give a boost to kids before they get left behind.
