Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. (ICYT) is a non-profit tutoring business in the City of St. Louis, Missouri, established in 2005. ICYT provides individualized one-on-one tutoring services to youth (PreK-12th grade), particularly at-risk, underprivileged, and under-served. All services are in-person or virtually before or after school, wherever convenient for a student and their family (e.g., school, library, church, daycare, community center) to meet.
90% of the student population ICYT serves live below the poverty level, are behind academically, and have poorly educated parents or guardians who work low-paying jobs. So, expecting these students and their families to seek out individual tutoring services and be able to pay is unthinkable, yet they desperately need and deserve these services.
ICYT and its executive director, Marsha McCleod, believe ALL students, no matter who they are or where they attend school, should be given every opportunity to achieve and experience quality education and academic success within the educational realm. Therefore, Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. established its "Blocks to Books Funding Program" and obtained its 501 (c)(3) status in 2007, so students and their families would be able to receive tutoring services at no cost.
Lastly, ICYT services are made possible through fundraising, monetary donations, and grants from individuals, organizations, businesses, and foundations locally and out of state that may contribute yearly. Over the past years, several students have been served and received funding for weekly tutoring services.
DONATIONS NEEDED (e.g., gift cards/certificates, event tickets, electronic devices, small appliances, home office equipment, seasonal products, weekend stays, monetary donations, and so on...) Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc.'s (ICYT) Blocks to Books Fundraisers need items to raffle or auction off for the 2022-2023 school year. ICYT will collect items from November 1, 2022, to September 1, 2023, for ICYT's fall/winter, spring/summer, and Biennial Blocks to Books Funding events. All proceeds from each event will benefit ICYT's students' weekly tutoring services and supplies for the 2022-2023 school year (see attached flyer) above. Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. appreciates your support.
