When we canvassed in East Gainesville throughout the spring, summer, and fall of 2018, we asked community members what they are most concerned about in terms of governmental impact in their lives.
The poor quality of education and low funding for our public schools were by far the most common concerns we heard.
As an effort to respond to this concern and have a positive impact in our community beyond what we can control at the legislative level right now, we have decided to partner with the Woodland Park Boys & Girls Club in providing after-school tutoring beginning in the 2019/2020 school year.
They have an amazing Director and staff that already run a tutoring program for the 50-60 kids in attendance, but they are short-handed and could greatly benefit from committed volunteers to come in an hour or two a week and provide one-on-one reading and simple math instruction.
Can you spend one hour per week helping these amazing kids? We understand that this is a big commitment. The Director of the program also emphasized how important consistency is with these children, so please consider whether you will be able to show up on a regular basis.
