10BH is a highly successful nonprofit organization that provides early childhood Intrinsic Learning Motivation (ILM)-based education in the home. 10BH’s mission is to prevent the achievement gap by instilling a lifelong love of learning in a child through cultivating their intrinsic learning motivations (ILMs). This ensures that high poverty preschoolers enter kindergarten above grade level with families who are permanently invested in their learning.
Children of all learning abilities are accepted and most families in the high poverty areas around 10BH qualify for enrollment. Parents participate in lessons and over time learn how to permanently support their child’s learning in the home. This helps ensure that upon kindergarten entry, children and parents (the family) are prepared to prevent the achievement gap. Four years of longitudinal data on 10BH’s graduates show they are outperforming students in California by 47% in math and 10% in English (regardless of most children being English Language Learners).
