School-Based Programs

School-Based Programs

Working in partnership with schools, we empower students experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity to become full participants in their learning journey.

Brightlane Learning supports students with personalized academic support and proven interventions to help them stay on track for academic achievement.

We currently partner with more than 20 schools across several districts, including the largest school district in Indiana. These partnerships have produced powerful outcomes for schools, and life-changing opportunities for students.

By helping students succeed, we help schools succeed.

Our programs help students read at grade level, achieve grade promotion, and prepare for graduation. Our team also assists teachers, helping to support stability and overall success in the classroom. The net effect of our work narrows the achievement gap while improving academic performance on a school-wide level.


Without specialized support, students experiencing homelessness are twice as likely to repeat a grade, and are at a disproportionately high risk to drop out of school entirely. The majority of these students are from minoritized groups.


Our team supports students in core grade-level skills, such as literacy and math. We also help with everything from transportation support to school supplies, so each student can persist in their educational journey. Through this work, we contribute to a more equitable educational environment.

  • Individualized Learning Plans

    We develop detailed plans that focus on each students’ unique needs.

  • Supportive Interventions

    We support students with behavioral interventions when appropriate.

  • Family Workshops

    We engage parents and help them become advocates for their child’s education.


I want to have Brightlane work with me everyday.

Erin has been a wonderful resource for the kids in my class that she has been working with. They enjoy their time and come back motivated to improve.

My students that participated really enjoyed their time with their tutors and built great connections.
