Beyond Basics is a 501(c)(3) student-centered, literacy non-profit, serving students in Detroit public schools since 2002. We partner with principals and schools to bring students to literacy by providing reading, tutoring, and supplemental programs – writing, art, mentoring, and partnerships – throughout the school day for students in grades Pre-K through 12.
