Images of Excellence is a Black-owned business that was established in August 2010 for the purpose of providing tutoring and mentoring services in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas of Ohio. Participants are provided individualized services in their respective areas of weakness that will improve academic skills, grades, and standardized test scores.
Their Youth Mentoring Program known as Project LEAD encourages students to go to college or pursue some higher education or training after high school. Project LEAD will also serve as a gateway into adulthood by developing leadership skills and by enhancing coping skills for social-emotional challenges.
Images of Excellence has a presence in the community by hosting literacy nights at local elementary schools to promote parent and child reading interactions at home. This event provides parents with take-home activities, free books, and community leaders opportunities to volunteer.
Images of Excellence’s vision is that each child will become an image of excellence in academic, personal, and social environments by being a positive influence on other lives as they L.E.A.D. (Learn, Explore, Achieve, Dream). Their mission is to equip youth in the community with tools for academic and personal success which lead to productive future careers as they grow into respectful citizens.
Their goal is to have a tutoring and mentoring program that identifies the needs of inner-city youth by generating ideas and developing proactive ways to solve the problems youth are faced with in society including academic, emotional, and social issues.
Images of Excellence is unique because their programs are more than just another after-school or summer program. Their curriculum and schedule have been created by educators, entrepreneurs, social workers, and community leaders to ensure we meet all the needs of young people. They service severe behaviorally challenged children as well as students with learning disabilities. They offer high-quality programming at a low cost and also provide scholarships for families who qualify based on income alone with multi-children discounts for parents with more than one kid.
