Apex currently serves students from 1st to 12th grade in New York City. Our suite of programs begins in elementary school, providing students with structured academic and social activities to improve their communication skills and provide opportunities to interact with adults. In the middle school and high school years, Apex encourages more personalized one-to-one mentoring to build deeper relationships with youth and address their specific needs. High school students also can access more rigorous academic assistance from Apex to prepare them for college.

Through youth developing strong relationships with positive role models who volunteer their service, Apex’s goal is for its youth to become Apex volunteers themselves in the future: confident, college-ready individuals who want to give back to the community.
