PEP, the Parent Encouragement Program, is a nonprofit organization that is funded by a combination of class fees (which cover about half of our costs), memberships and the generous contributions of individuals and businesses in the community. Contributions make it possible for PEP to offer scholarships to those unable to afford class fees and to provide programs to schools and under-served communities. All donations are tax-deductible.
