We depend on our team of dedicated tutors and site coordinators to help meet the academic needs of over 70 students in every elementary and middle school in the Ithaca City School District.
Kolby began his career in education nonprofits at the Deep Center in Savannah, Ga. teaching creative writing workshops and helping middle school students become published authors. He later interned as a community organizer before serving with several organizations helping local public school students, including 21st Century Community Learning Centers, YMCA of Coastal Georgia and Horizons Savannah.
Whether working as a teacher, youth advocate or curriculum specialist, Kolby continued to push for educational equity and expand the boundaries of the nonprofit sector. He served as an active board member and chair of the marketing and community outreach committee at Coastal Empire Montessori Charter School and earned his master's degree from Armstrong State University before relocating to Ithaca, NY.
