An Organization You Can Trust

AXIS Foundation, Inc. supports the communities of Riverside and Los Angeles counties providing a variety of services that deliver of financial literacy, music literacy and life skills products to serveral at-risk populations to include; foster care youth, low income families, teenage youth, pre-teens and ex-gang members.

The programs (called the "after-school literacy" & the "critical think" on money projects) are considered an innovative approach to helping individuals living in or near poverty, and in many situations, on public assistance. We want to see them make progress to improving their livelihood economically and socially.

VOLUNTEERING

VOLUNTEER - LEARN & TEACH FIN LIT
Volunteering is a key reason for our existence. We have a low overhead, and try to create an environment that is conducive to a free, open learning experience.

Our Primary Goal

The primary goal is to increase graduation rates & opportunities for success by:

    1. reducing truancy and after-school criminal activity opportunities, while...
    2. enhancing school success potential among elementary pre-teens and teens through involvement in after-school music, reading / math and financial literacy programs.

Plato once said that music "is a more potent instrument than any other for education." Music trains the brain for higher forms of thinking.

OUR CAUSES

Our causes support literacy and growth. Our goal is to increase graduation rates through music and active support with math, reading, culinary arts and financial literacy...

Our Volunteers...

The best part of any lab is the volunteers who come to train and assist... They gain community service hours, or credits toward course work...

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

The aforementioned topics were not in a particular order—they were covered within the 2 hour span. They took creative liberty to make it interesting yet realistic. I appreciated the support and I look forward to another workshop in June.
