How we are making it better

  • Literacy

    Building a foundation for academic success through small group, individualized tutorials for struggling readers.

  • Leadership

    Instilling leadership skills is an integral part of all Making It Better programs, giving children the ability to resist the negative influences that are so common today.

  • Life Skills

    Developing self-management and positive relationship skills and learning to express feelings appropriately is infused into every program; enabling children to grow into successful, contributing members of society.

  • “Making It Better is transforming lives and empowering our community.”

    Juliet Stipeche | Director of Education for the City of Houston

  • “Our education problem is going to be solved one kid at a time, and Making It Better does that better than anybody else.”

    Zach Hodges | President, Houston Community College NW

Real Stories. Real People.

Dylan is a kindergarten student in our Reading Intervention program at Piney Point Elementary. At the start of the program, he lacked the foundational skills required to begin learning how to read. He recognized less than half of the alphabet and did not know any of the sounds that the letters make.  After only nine weeks of small-group instruction, Dylan has improved 65% of his foundational skills and has begun reading his first books. We are excited to see how much more Dylan improves by the end of his time in the program!
