We aspire to ensure that every youth has the ability to flourish through the transformative influence of connection and mentorship.
Our Story. Our Mission.
In 2022, a group of dedicated pre-health college students united with a shared vision, laying the foundation for what would become Educate & Excel Academy (EEA). Turning a crucial idea into reality, our journey began with a clear purpose: to support Emergent Bilingual Students (ESL), a demographic often overlooked in our communities.
EEA is a mentoring non-profit organization committed to aiding ESL as they navigate the challenges of adapting to a new culture. We meticulously select college mentors to provide invaluable assistance across various facets of our mentees' daily lives, from navigating class courses to fostering genuine friendships.
After months of purposeful effort, we proudly launched our program in January of 2023. At the heart of our organization is not only a profound desire to create lasting change but also a commitment to paving a more coherent path for students who navigate a challenging journey without guidance.
While our team members come from diverse backgrounds, we share a common drive — a commitment to the future of our students. These students are an integral and important part of our community and deserve an equal foundation for growth, standing alongside their peers. Join us at EEA as we collaboratively work to empower the next generation, ensuring that no student journeys alone toward a brighter and more promising future.
