Emily Lerer Launches “Warby Parker of Tutoring”
Emily Lerer has launched a nonprofit focused on tutoring that takes a page from @WarbyParker ’s “buy one, give one” business model. The organization, entitled “Project Tutor,” is dedicated to providing inner-city children with access to tutoring services.
When a paid tutoring session is scheduled, @ProjectTutor donates an additional session to a child who otherwise would not have access to these services. The ultimate goal is to provide a greater balance of resources and support across the entire New York City public school system.
Emily’s husband, Ben Lerer, is the co-founder and CEO of @Thrillist Media Group and managing director of @LererVentures which he co-founded with his father Ken, Eric Hippeau, & Jordan Cooper. Lerer Ventures was one of the first investors in Warby Parker. Prior to founding “Project Tutor,” Emily was a teacher in New York City for eight years.
