Ghoghanj Children's Center College Entrance Test Prep 2011-12
The mission of the Ghoghanj Children’s Center is to provide the proper support and guidance children need to excel in school and become self-confident and respectful young adults. Founded in 2003, the Ghoghanj Children’s Center works with vulnerable “at-risk” children and their families to help them overcome social, psychological and legal issues.
The Center’s programs are specifically designed to facilitate group discussion and are sensitive to the psychological challenges of an at-risk child and their families. The Center works to develop successful communication, self-expression and tolerance skills among the students. A fundamental focus on homework assistance and tutoring to ensure academic success is a key ingredient of the programs’ success.
As students enter the 10th grade, they must begin preparing for their college entrance examinations. A successful score on these examinations means a child has a chance to attend college and turn his/her life around. As these students have substantial financial difficulties, it is impossible for them to engage a tutor for these tests. This new program of the Ghoghanj Children’s Center would provide 10th and 11th grade, at-risk students free of charge tutoring services for their college entrance examinations. The goal of this program is to help these students transition successfully into college.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
