The Notre Dame Urban Education Center is committed to providing service where the need is most great and most of our families cannot afford to pay for the services we provide. 


And while the Notre Dame Urban Education Center relies heavily on volunteers, there are still hard costs associated with running a quality program.


Thus, we look to the generosity and support of the community 


We invite you to join with us in empowering children and strengthening families to achieve success in school and in life.


Frequently Asked Questions


Is there really a need for NDUEC?

A dangerously high number of Northern Kentucky children drop out of school between 8th grade and high school. NDUEC was designed to address this issue by providing one-on-one tutoring, academic support, cultural and arts enrichment and structured physical education and recreation for some of the most at-risk and under-served children in our community.

Why should I invest in NDUEC?

Research shows that the health, safety and stability of families and neighborhoods is inextricably linked to student success. Beyond access to health, safety and social services, children need opportunities to enrich their lives and help them be successful. Your contribution enables children and famlies who would otherwise be unable to afford or access this intensive level of academic support and enrichment, to benefit from this effective program.


What difference will my gift make?

Your investment supports the provision of a unique model that combines consistent, positive and personalized tutoring, mentoring, enrichment and play. Through the services that these children are provided through the collaborative efforts of the Sisters of Notre Dame, community organizations, volunteers and generous donors like you - these children improve their grades, their self-esteem and their positive trajectory toward academic success and a more productive fulfilling life.
