THE STORY:

Detroit Indians is a Oakland County based charitable organization founded 1.5 years ago by local professionals of Indian origin and is dedicated to serving the Detroit community. Our primary goal is to promote education-related endeavors in City of Detroit with a vision to grow the charitable contributions multifold in the near future. Our hope is to make meaningful albeit small scale, impact for a place we have called “home” for the past several decades. Detroit Indians launched “Detroit Indian Academy” in 2014, an online-tutoring school. The academy aims at providing online tutoring to elementary in Metro-Detroit. Since 2014 professional engineers and high school students have been tutoring 4th and 5th graders at Wayne Elementary School, Detroit, and coaching them in Science and Math topics.   Since April 2015 Detroit Indians Academy expanded the tutoring program from two to three classes after school from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.. There are around 30 volunteer tutors in the organization. The tutoring sessions are held throughout the school year. Along with this the academy employed two high school students who assist in ongoing school classes and after school tutoring.. . Going by the success of this model, Detroit Indians are set to expand this model and aim to serve additional schools this year. In a span of five years, the NGO aims at developing a tutoring network with 10 schools and they plan to serve most of most of Detroit and Pontiac public schools in a decade. We need professional volunteer-tutors or high-school students or 8th grader as volunteer tutors for tutoring math and science to 4th & 5th graders. Get involved & join us in this effort. We thank our volunteers, sponsors and supporters for their financial support and encouragement
