Programs

Our M.A.S.T.R. Kids Programs – Math, Art, Science, Technology & Reading – nurture curiosity and a love of learning with Literacy and STEAM curriculum that develops both sides of the brain!

After-School
Program

Research shows that out-of-school time programs like M.A.S.T.R. Kids have a positive effect on reading and math achievement!

About Us

Hi, I’m Bridgette. My father and I created the Shirley Proctor Puller Foundation (SPPF) alongside family members and close friends of my mom (especially Angela Collins and Gladys McNeil). We acted because my mom implored us to “DO SOMETHING” to help improve education outcomes for children in our community.
