Philosophy

 Origins
The Center for Family Life has nurtured and developed several worker cooperatives in the Sunset Park neighborhood. When an observant social worker reported that she saw a need for tutoring to help out the many young Chinese- and Spanish- speaking students, the idea of a tutoring cooperative, the first of its kind, was born. It brought together a diverse, talented and idealistic group of people who responded to the challenge and started a long training session in February 2015.

What is a cooperative?
A worker cooperative  is a type of business where decisions are made democratically by the people who do the work, the members. Because every tutor is an owner of the cooperative business, we are committed to providing high quality and affordable tutoring services.
