Bridging academic and emotional gaps in the lives of children.

Minding the Gap comes alongside at-risk children to bridge a gap that all too often exists 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.
