Supported by The Stranahan Foundation, The Anderson Family Foundation, and The Princeton Review.
Drop-In/Tutoring: Teens come to the Neutral Zone to relax in a safe space and access needed supports for academic and job success. Health snacks, a study space, a computer lab, and community building opportunities are available. FREE tutoring is available Mondays through Thursdays, from 2:30-5 p.m. Drop-in or call in advance to request a tutor who has knowledge in the subject area of your need.
Individual Mentorship: Neutral Zone staff meet individually with interested teens to discuss and address individual challenges. Throughout the year, we work with counselors, parents, teachers and more to overcome issues such as truancy, teacher/student conflict, and disciplinary problems.
College Readiness: In partnership with the Princeton Review, Neutral Zone provides college readiness workshops and a full ACT prep course. Teens also receive individual assistance with the college application and financial aid process. All workshops are FREE, however pre-registrationis required. The series is designed for teens, but parents are welcome to attend. To register or for more information, click here.
