During the pandemic, Seeds had to pivot quickly, transferring our individual, in-person tutoring to digital, remote tutoring options via teleconference and video conference. For the majority of our students, internet-enabled technology wasn’t available. Through support of generous foundation, corporate and individual donors, Seeds launched our program entirely online. The success of this program has illustrated an ongoing need for remote services, even AFTER our classrooms reopen. Read more here.

On July 12, 2021 our classrooms reopened. They were converted to allow for social distancing, spacers were built, PPE was acquired, and we enacted a disinfection protocol. As a final layer of protection, all in-person tutoring requires vaccination and masking. The Virtual Classroom has remained open as an alternative for our non-vaccinated and out of town students and tutors. Read More About Our Response to COVID-19.


At absolutely no cost to our students, we serve almost 1,000 adults every year — people who seek a  better future for themselves and their families through education. Every donation matters. On behalf of our students and their families, we are grateful for every dollar.
