Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. (ICYT) is a non-profit tutorial business located in the City of St. Louis, Missouri established in 2005. ICYT provides individualized one-on-one tutoring services to youth (PreK-12th grade), particularly those who are at-risk, underprivileged, and under-served. All services provided during the school day ('push-in program') and after school ('pull-out program')-wherever it is convenient for a student and their family (e.g., school, library, church, daycare, community center, etc.) to meet.

90% of the student population ICYT serves live below the poverty level, behind academically, and have parents and/or guardians that are poorly educated and work low paying jobs. So, expecting these students and their families to seek out private 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 as well as academic success within the educational realm. Therefore, Inner City Youth Tutoring, Inc. established its “Blocks to Books” scholarship fund and obtain its 501 (c)(3) status in 2007, so students and their families would be able to receive tutoring services, at no cost to them.

Lastly, ICYT receives its funding by seeking local and out of state organizations, businesses, foundations, as well as private and anonymous donors to contribute on a yearly basis. Over the past years 100+ students have been served and able to receive funding for weekly tutoring.
