About Us

Our Misson
School Supplies

We are an online educational aid 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that strives to support students from grades 1-12. We hope to help students get ahead in class or even just catch up with regular coursework by guiding them on their journey to academic excellence, either through tutoring or simply providing them with high-quality educational resources. We truly believe each and every student is capable of becoming the best version of themselves, and that you can’t put a price on knowledge! 

Our Story

Every Non-Profit has a story. Ours begins with one idea, 5 people, and an ocean's worth of support. We began with our first meeting in early November of 2020 (virtual due to the pandemic) and we now continue to meet once a week to make sure things are just as we imagined it to be. We had our fair share of ups and downs, but we never lost hope and we want everybody to know that they can do anything if they set their mind towards.
