BranchOut!, as part of Veritas Education Leaders, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, has partnered with STEP Mentorship and Girls Who Math to uphold the standards of learning. Ever since the closure of the public school systems in the country, BranchOut! student leaders have been working hard to alleviate the burden of educators by bringing BranchOut! services to students in need.
BranchOut! services include a free online tutoring program that is personalized to the needs of each student. Each tutee gets personally assigned a mentor who works to help them in subjects that they are struggling in. Through this program, student mentors can assist the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, and tutees can easily receive high quality educational support.
BranchOut! was founded in 2015 by Veritas Education Leaders to help close the education gap between students while promoting STEM education. From 2015 to present, BranchOut! has grown from twenty student mentors to almost one hundred fifty student mentors. Throughout the years, BranchOut! has mentored students at community centers, high schools, and homeless shelters in the DMV area. The program is supported by those such as Virginia Senator Tim Kaine and Former FCPS Board Member at Large Ryan McElveen.
