After-School Tutoring

During the school year, our team in collaboration with TGRF provides weekly no cost afterschool tutoring sessions for 1st – 3rd grade students at local partner schools. The Education Team works closely with local schools to co-create curriculum and identify areas of need. These sessions are led by our Education Team and student leaders from our out-of-area partner schools.

Community Days

In our efforts to authentically engage the local West Philadelphia community, Cobbs Creek Foundation and TGR Foundation have been regularly sponsoring Community Days held at local schools for 1st-4th grade students. These events vary from month-to-month, but often entail fun activities such as face painting, yoga, moon bounces, ice cream trucks and more. The goal of these events are to give children a creative and playful weekend fun experience while supporting Philadelphia nonprofits. Engagement at this level has allowed our team to receive honest feedback regarding our project and educational programming, in addition to interfacing directly with the students and parents residing in our area.
