Moder Patshala

Community Fund for Wellness

Education is key component of wellness - Moder Patshala’s programs provide necessary support for primarily Bangladeshi immigrants to adjust to a new academic environment in the US.


Moder Patshala’s programs focus on providing students (grades K-12) and their caregivers with academic assistance, guidance for communicating with schools, and essential support to overcome culture and language barriers which may hinder academic achievement. Their programs include SAT, ACT, and PSAT preparation for high school students and ESL classes led by graduate student tutors. Running Monday through Thursday in the afternoons and evenings and on Saturday mornings, their programming monitors students’ academic progress, designs and implements improvement plans for each student, and provides tutoring and a quiet space for students to do homework. They also provide English as Second Language programs and classes for parents, led by TESOL students from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.

Moder Patshala ensures the active engagement of immigrant students in their educational setting. Advocates at Moder also serve as community advocates for students at their schools, as communicators between parents and the school system. In doing so, they are able to bridge a gap between the Philadelphia school system and the needs of immigrant communities. By also addressing culture shock and language barriers, Moder Patshala ensures the holistic success of the students they work with.
