Tolson Center

23 Jan Tolson Center

We were established in 1941 to serve any Elkhart youth seeking advancement and personal development in academics, sports and community involvement. We serve students in grades 1-12, hosting about 40 a day, all from poverty and below poverty level homes and from homes generally without computers. Our standard policy is that each student must do at least 30 minutes of homework before any recreational activity. Currently Elkhart schools have all homework assignments posted online so students can download and perform homework, submitting it directly to their teachers. ECCF funding would allow us to purchase and install 12 computers and software, doubling our capacity, thereby enhancing and improving our students’ education.

Grant $14,300
