Mission

Student Power is a student- led portal.  We are providing a student to student tutoring platform that supports student learning and empowers students to achieve success.

The sudden switch to virtual learning impacted all K-12 students, the ones whose education was impacted most were elementary and middle schoolers.  Our team saw an opportunity to build a community to teach young students and help older students meet their graduation requirements through Student Power.
