UPDATE

JANUARY 13, 2021

The negative impact caused by the closing of schools for young children in K-8 during the COVID-19 pandemic has been timely studied and was found to be more pronounced for students with disadvantaged backgrounds. It also stated that the damage could linger long after this time period.

A Little Joy Initiative has taken the lead early in tutoring the under-resourced K-8 students with “Tutoring to the Rescue” from early April last year. Many generous college students, young professionals and others have been joining the Program and delivering thousands of tutoring hours.

We’re humbled and very thankful for all you have done for the children. Please continue to help!

FREE ONLINE TUTORING

With this initiative, our goal is to help low-income parents and students grades K-8 get through the school year during these challenging times. Gaps in education and resources are larger than ever and we hope to close these gaps to the best of our ability.

 

Many of our online tutors come from Stanford University and other reputable institutions. Low-income families from all over the U.S. are encouraged to enroll and be matched to a tutor!

DONATION DROP-OFF

While some have more than enough, others are less fortunate and do not have anything. We purchase specific household products and collect unwanted goods in order to donate them to schools or other organizations who are in need of them.

HOLIDAY HAPPINESS

For the past several years, A Little Joy Initiative has been spreading the holiday cheer by giving away gifts at the Niem Tin School for the Disabled and others in Saigon, Vietnam.
