Marquise was struggling academically, found it difficult to focus on life goals, and was often distrustful and distant around others — including his foster mother. Then he joined The Foundling’s Road to Success tutoring program.
Once realizing that his tutor, Khristian, was there to help him, Marquise began to open up and see new possibilities. Marquise and his tutor formed a close bond, and while Khristian provided life-changing academic support, he also became Marquise’s friend and mentor. And their relationship did more than improve Marquise’s grades. He has more confidence, and his relationship with his foster mother has completely changed for the better.
Now, Marquise is on track in his high school courses, and is excited to plan for higher education and beyond.
