What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Law School Tutoring

The first year of law school can be challenging for many students, regardless of whether they are attending a traditional school, an online program, or participating in the Law Office Study program. The latter program, offered by the California Bar Association, requires students to take an exam that is similar in content and difficulty to the general bar exam. However, the pass rate for this exam is only around 20%. We are committed to helping students in underserved communities who are pursuing a law degree through this program to increase their chances of passing and using their degrees to benefit their communities.es.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

F84.0 is fighting the good fight against autism, aspergers and other associated disorders. Creating a community supported non-profit will let us offer direct, focused and needed resources. Started by a family with two boys who are among those affected we have a great deal of hope and knowledge that we want to share. We believe that given direct access to the resources that each child and family needs, we can help ease some of the burden that this disorder creates.
Dedicated to teach your child they way they learn
Offering directed, focused and therapeutic activities
Reaching for tangible and measurable benefits to kids and their families

Being the parents of two boys with the autism spectrum disorder, we often get asked, “How are the boys doing in school?” Our standard answer is this: “They are passing their classes but not sure how.” Even though they attend public school regularly and get their homework done, they are unable to function independently in the outside life. When an 11 year old can’t tell time, something went wrong.

Schools can’t offer the personal hands on training that our children require. They may have a good teacher or a class but it’s only for a short time each day if they are lucky. As parents who are with them the rest of their time, we must be the ones to teach and reinforce good life skills.

Life skills are more than just learning to count money or vacuuming. They serve to foster growth in several key areas that will serve our children for the rest of their lives. Independence can be learned through learning to take a bus, dressing themselves or making friends. Good nutrition and health can be learned through exercising, fixing a simple meal or personal hygiene. Teaching the small things can lead to bigger breakthroughs.

By creating this non-profit, our goal is to be able to give other families a place to go for activities that will teach these life skills. Whether directly or indirectly, our programs are intended to help teens (11-22) reach their full potential.

Commitments from local professionals, special education teachers, parents, community and other allow us to offer a wide range of programs to address clients targeted needs.

We have only received our approval fall of 2014. We are looking for a location currently as well as sponsorship to help fund the office space.
