Our RECs help students who have fallen behind gain the foundational skills they need to succeed in school and in life, as well as provide valuable work-, teaching- and leadership experience to local youth.

CS was founded in December 2016 and has, in collaboration with our implementing partner - Institution for Suitable Actions for Prosperity (ISAP), successfully completed five remedial education courses - with measurable impact on student learning outcomes.
