The Leaven

In 2005, community leaders from Parkway Community Church, City of Fairfield, and the County of Solano identified a need to improve the quality of the most under-privileged neighborhoods in the City of Fairfield. They created The Leaven, an after-school tutoring and mentoring program, as a way to show care and compassion for and proactively address the needs of at-risk and under-performing youth. The Leaven program catapulted a dynamic volunteer force eager to engage in active service to help their neighbors. Together these volunteers, through a grassroots effort, launched the first Leaven neighborhood after-school tutoring center.

The purpose of The Leaven is to share the love and compassion of Jesus Christ through acts of mercy and help to our neighbors through after-school tutoring and mentoring directly within our most in-needed and often forgotten neighborhoods.

The purpose of The Leaven is to share the love and compassion of Christ through acts of mercy and help to our neighbors. One way we do this is by increasing the academic achievements, self-esteem, and life opportunities for children living in low income, urban communities through after-school tutoring and mentoring directly within our most in-need and often forgotten neighborhoods in Northern and Southern California.


The Leaven has four main goals:
To increase student success in the classroom academically and behaviorally.
To inspire and enable students to make better choices for their health and future.
To involve and equip parents to positively impact their child

The Leaven’s mission is to share Christ’s love through the ministry of help in our neighborhoods. One we way we do that is by increasing the academic achievements, self-esteem, and life opportunities for children living in low-income, urban communitie
