Check out this great non-profit organization that is doing their part to help provide educational services to lower income communities. I recommend going to their homepage and read about what they do, you can make a donation right from the website.
PDX Summer School was founded by Tim Schulze who graduated from the University of Oregon in 2004 with a degree in psychology. In 2009 he earned his Masters in the Art of Education from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
PDX Summer School provides tutoring services for low income, ESL students from Mill Park Elementary in Portland Oregon. Many Mill Park students are in need of tutoring services over the summer in order to reach or maintain grade level proficiency. Because many of their students currently struggle to achieve grade level proficiency in one or more subjects, they are especially susceptible to a decline in their academic achievements over the summer. Lack of academic exercise during the summer months often exacerbates this problem (pdxSummerSchool.com).
