The majority of the children of the Redwood City School District are on the free-and-reduced lunch program, living below the poverty level. Affordable housing is scarce, and many families must combine with families in single-family dwellings to keep rental costs down. Such crowded living conditions make for difficult learning environments for young children. We have been supporting these students by reading weekly with them, helping them with other topics they struggle with, and joining their families in activities and with a variety of services to give them the best opportunity to grow and thrive.
We continue to offer in-person tutoring and have plans for exciting programming during the school year. Please connect with us to be a part of our efforts!
Our current needs:
- Reading partners for students
- After-School Counselors-in-Training (CITs) – a great option for student volunteers!
- People to prepare/donate snacks for students in our AEC
