Need for Project MotiVATe
Project MotiVATe was created due to the lack of support for Vietnamese American youth with academic problems. Other organizations providing service to Vietnamese American youth with academic problems charge a fee that many families unable to pay. Project MotiVATe provides free academic tutoring for students who show a need for academic mentorship and are referred by their high school teachers or counselors.
