T H I N K TOGETHER
August 20, 2011

THINK Together is a phenomenal organization that is redefining after-school programs in Southern California. They are not an after-school program that will baby-sit your children, but instead will provide additional hours of tutoring and mentoring in order to help your child succeed in school. THINK Together is partnering with more and more schools each year and is expanding their services at an outstanding rate due to their proven track record in improving test scores at their partner schools. Further, with schools continually facing budget cuts and being required to do more with less, THINK Together uses state funded grants as we as private donations to educate and improve the lives in the next generation of after-school students.
