SILVER SPRING, MD – Join us Saturday, January 17 – GapBuster, Inc., also known as GapBuster Learning Center, has re-established a Montgomery County, Maryland office in the Silver Spring United Methodist Church located at 31 University Blvd, East, Silver Spring, MD 20901 and will celebrate its grand re-opening. Please join us along with our guest speaker Honorable Catherine Leggett in a ribbon cutting ceremony and a tour of our facility on Saturday, January 17 at 4:00PM.

In 2009, GapBuster, Inc. was forced to relocate all of their Montgomery County, MD services into school sites such Wheaton High School and Sligo Middle School. It was an acceptable move, but services were not open to all students due to the school hours and locations. Additionally, the move limited GapBuster’s ability from offering evening and weekend programming. Now with the new location, GapBuster can again provide after-school, weekend, and alternative programs, servicing youth in 6th through 12th grades. photo 1

Founded in 1999 by Yvette Butler, MD and obtained non-profit status in 2001, GapBuster, Inc. is committed to raising the academic standard and promoting higher levels of achievement for socio-economically disadvantaged students.  Through supplemental education, enrichment programs, and leadership development training, GapBuster develops well-rounded individuals positioned to excel in academic, social, and professional environments.

GapBuster, Inc. is an educational program dedicated to promoting higher levels of achievement and closing the performance gap of students by enriching and supplementing their learning experience. The services began as a home-based volunteer program to assist youth in mathematics; GapBuster, Inc. has now served over 5,000 individuals and offers an array of youth development, prevention, and continuing education services to the most at-risk population in the community.

Again join friends, supporters and our First Lady of Montgomery County Maryland, Catherine Leggett, on Saturday, January 17 at 4:00 pm in welcoming GapBuster’s “Developing Leaders for the Next Generation.”
