Why "Run for Education": Be a change that you wish for Detroit public students 
Change the lives of few young Detroit public school students through becoming an online-tutor either in math or English or science for 4th & 5th graders 


Detroit Indians is a registered nonprofit organization founded three years ago by local professionals from Michigan, dedicated to serving the Detroit community. Our primary goal is to promote education in the City of Detroit, with a vision to expand our charitable contributions multifold.  Our hope is to make a meaningful impact and give back to the  Detroit area, a place that we have called “home” for the past several decades. 

Detroit Indians established  the” Detroit Indian Academy” in 2014 as an online-tutoring school. The academy provides free online tutoring in math, English and science to elementary school students in Detroit Public Schools (DPS). Tutors conduct online-tutoring from their most convenient location, either from school or home.

We are in process of expanding our online-tutoring program to new schools in Detroit and Pontiac. Thus, we need more high-school tutors who are willing to volunteer 1 hour per week for this educational cause. One of the features of this tutoring program is that you can conduct online-tutoring from any convenient location, either at your office or  home.

DI-tutors are asked to volunteer one hour per week from 5:00pm to 6:00pm after work or school. The tutoring takes place each week on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursdays. You just need to sign-up for one day that is most convenient for you. In case you are traveling or have another commitment, you simply send a brief message to the administrator of the tutoring program.

If you have high-school children in your family who would like to tutor and support young students in Detroit Public Schools, you are welcome to pass this information on to them. All volunteering hours will be certified at the end of the school year.
