So this is the space during tutoring hours.

The key thing is, even if you only have a couple of hours a month,
those two hours shoulder-to-shoulder,

shining this beam of light on their work,
on their thoughts and their self-expression,
is going to be absolutely transformative,
because so many of the students have not had that ever before.
- Dave Eggers

And that's actually the brunt of what we do is,
people going straight from their workplace,
straight from home, straight into the classroom and
working directly with the students.
So then we're able to work with thousands and thousands more students.

You can do and use the skills that you have.
The schools need you.

questions for hours at a time.
- Dave Eggers

- Dave Eggers

But you know, there's something about the kids finishing
their homework in a given day,

- Dave Eggers

the way they are and the way they are not.

with whom they are most bonded.
