Believing that education is the pathway out of poverty, Tiffany Tucker, along with four other college students, created Redemption to increase the educational advancement of under-served New York City youth between the ages of 13 and 19.
Redemption, Inc., is a nonprofit youth-education and community empowerment organization. Redemption’s overarching goal is to bridge the gap between children in disadvantaged Brooklyn communities and success. It serves to enable teens that are at-risk of failing classes, dropping out of school and sabotaging their ability to excel academically and to become community leaders. Redemption encourages the educational advancement of youth by promoting intergenerational learning, community involvement, and self-advocacy.
Housed at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York, Redemption provides youth with an abundance of information and resources through: one-on-one mentoring, life skills workshops, the College-to-College Redemption Blueprint, support for valedictorians, tutoring, and its signature “Get Your Mind Right” Back to School Event.
Functioning as a source of communication and guidance for the youth in New York City, Redemption has served over 4,000 students. Redemption has a track record of giving young adults the necessary tangible resources to succeed.
