Who we are

Established in 2000, licensed in the State of Ohio, Broad Street Achievement (BSA) programs provide out-of-school academic enrichment services for K-12 youth and their families.

Our Vision

BSA will help prepare youth in the Broad Street Presbyterian Church community as for high school graduation, successful transition to post-secondary education, and the workforce.

Our Mission is to create a structured program environment in which participants can develop as inclusive, healthy, safe, and happy citizens.

Our Goal is to deliver quality programming that supports the development of essential life skills (academic achievement, healthy living, and career achievement).

Our Primary Objectives are to:

  • Academic Assessment: Through personalized pre-, interim-, and post-assessments, develop academic enrichment plans in support of 100% of our program youth’s academic skills improvement. Read more…
  • Academic Enrichment: Through homework assistance, reading and math tutoring, hands-on and on line learning experiences, provide 100% academic achievement support to youth and families. Read more…
  • Healthy Living Promotion: Through nutrition education, recreational physical fitness, and the provision of nutritious meals, support 100% promotion of our youth and families’ health and wellness habits. Read more…
  • Mentorship: Match 100% of our youth with individually assigned mentors who will facilitate each youth’s successful achievement in our programs.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are crucial to the work we do. We have several opportunities for volunteerism. We require volunteers to commit to at least one day per week, one hour each day, for at least an entire semester.

  • Mentoring (choose to be a mentor for at least one of our youth and regularly attend our programming to support that (those) youth). Volunteers working with children must submit the following documentation:
  • Administrative (support our program with data entry, data analysis, filing, phone calls, emails, and more).
  • Field Support (promote our program through canvassing within our neighborhood).

Philanthropy Opportunities

Without donors generous support, providing quality programming for youth and families in our community would cease. Without you, no us. Using the following donation link below, please give. Thank you! Read more… and
