A 30-year-old mentoring program is providing academic and social support for students in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., regions during the difficult middle-school years. Over four years, the nonprofit Higher Achievement program -- which targets lower-income students with average academic achievement who want to improve their learning -- offers courses and field trips during the summer and after-school, and evening sessions with tutors and mentors throughout the school year.
