Bound Together, a non-profit after school tutoring and enrichment program has served the children of Oakland County for over a decade. Our program is designed to target “at risk” children including economically disadvantaged students in grades one through six. Bound Together has evolved into a top quality-tutoring program that serves the needs of the children four days a week – 3 days academic help and 1 day enrichment opportunities ( either art or cooking)

Bound Together is a volunteer based program concentrating in the areas of math, reading and writing skills. In partnership with surrounding schools (both public schools and charter schools), each child is individually assessed  ( and with the input and observations  of the tutors) and then instructed according to their academic scores and needs. During the school year evaluations are given to access the progress of each student in the program. Tutoring days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:15 PM and 5:30 PM. After all tutoring classes the children are served a nutritious meal through our Kids Cafe program.  Feb.11, 2013, we began an art experience (Creation Station) for the children enrolled in Bound Together.We will meet two Mondays a month at 4:15-6 pm. In October 2016 we began our healthy cooking class entitled “Kids in the Kitchen”. This  fun  class will focus on nutrition, informed  food choices and preparing simple, yet healthy meals.

Because of the commitment of tutors, the generosity of private donors and the charitable grant contributions that help make our program successful, Bound Together is committed to the children of Pontiac and to Creating and Educating a Caring Community.
