Every Child, A Chance To Learn
Today we are well aware that as the demands on families continue to increase and the support of communities and families decrease, the need for "the village" is paramount. We need communities that can surround historically underserved children and their families to help provide opportunities and resources that otherwise are out of reach.
AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING PROGRAM
One of our primary programs is After School Tutoring serving Shoreline elementary students. With rich cultural diversity and over 78 languages spoken in the home district wide, a great number of students in ELL, and a high percentage of low-income children, many of our schools are faced with great challenges. So are working families. Because the demand for additional support is growing while budgets are shrinking, our After School Tutoring Program provides free after school homework support and tutoring for students who need it and are falling behind in school. We partner with neighbors, high schools and colleges to provide volunteer tutors. Our goal is that every child will be engaged in school and connected to community -- so that every child can thrive.
SUMMER STEM CAMPS
Summer STEM Camps provide wonderful learning opportunities in the summer for students to applying math and science to real world innovation, discovery and exploration!
Our Science Camp will be offered from July 15th-19th from 9-12, engaging experiments led by Lakeside High School student scientists!
This summer, we are pleased to offer a Robotics Camp [by invitation only] to select 4th-6th grade students!
Invest in the Neighborhood
What our neighborhoods need most are people who care. People who will show up and participate. Citizens who will care about our local economy, landscape and health. Neighbors who will mentor, educate and coach. And community members who will collaborate, create and dream.
In healthy communities, everyone is valued. Everyone has gifts to offer. And as we participate, we are all enriched by the social fabric created.
What are your gifts? What is your dream?
We encourage you to awaken to the treasures hidden in plain sight within and among us.
