BELL (Building Educated Leaders
for Life) is a nonprofit organization that partners with schools to expand
learning time for struggling students in grades K-8. Our after school
programs combine rigorous academic instruction, social and cultural enrichment,
and parent and community engagement. At BELL, students gain the academic
skills, self-confidence, and determination they need to succeed in school and
in life. Because we recognize the extraordinary potential of all children
to excel, we recognize them as “scholars.”
BELL’s approach is powerful and
transformative for scholars, families, and schools. Research shows that
expanded learning time – particularly in the summer – is one of the most
effective strategies for boosting student achievement and eliminating
opportunity and achievement gaps. BELL works closely with parents, teachers,
and principals to target students in under-resourced schools who need more time
for learning the most. Our team of educators delivers data-driven instruction
aligned to in-school learning. Hands-on enrichment courses in the sciences,
creative arts, and leadership and character development, coupled with field
trips and service projects, reinforce academic skills and inspire scholars to
pursue future college and career goals.
BELL is currently serving 15,000
scholars in partnership with 98 schools across eight states. We are
pursuing an ambitious growth plan to reach even more scholars, schools, and
communities. We have earned recognition as an exemplary nonprofit organization
by the Social Innovation Fund at the Corporation for National and Community
Service, as a Social Capitalist Award winner by Fast Company Magazine, and as a
member of the S&I 100, the nation’s first index of top-performing
