Essential Playzone aka "The Zone" Tutorial Resource Center             



Sponsor A Youth| Sponsor A Future  


We rely on local business support to make sure that we can continue to provide our students with quality tutoring services. Even though our tutoring fee is minimal, some families are unable to commit to the financial obligation. That is where local business collaborations come into play. By sponsoring a youth, your business, would be helping a family get their child the educational assistance they need. 

Every business that donates will be featured on our 'Thank You' page as well as our monthly newsletter. The tutoring sessions that you donate will be given to a student that already receives our services. In the near future, we hope to provide tutoring scholarships to students in the area so that he or she never has to worry about the costs. This campaign is a step in that direction.
