WHO ARE WE?
Smart Scholars Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization operating in Houston, Texas which focuses on enhancing and bringing about a change in the lives of children. We provide mentorship to youth between the ages of 5 & 17 years. Our focus is to ensure that students realize the importance of getting a good education at an early age as well as throughout the duration of their school year(s). We also focus on obtaining parent engagement at each program/event that we host simply to get their support in enhancing the child’s life at home.
Our goal is to partner with parents and educational providers that supports Childhood Learning. We promote and support the local and global community by providing optimal educational choices to assist with the development of children from birth up to their teen stages of life.
Our hope is to no longer lose another “At-Risk” Child/ren to drugs, violence or gangs. We target children that live in the demographics of low-income areas simply by going into such communities and presenting our mentoring & enhancement programs to both parents and children.
