In a year like none other, LaAmistad has been working tirelessly to effectively shift Afterschool programming to an easily accessible online platform for fall 2020. Recognizing a unique opportunity, we've adopted a one-on-one online tutoring model for the fall, electing to individually pair volunteers up with one student with whom they will work for the entire year. It's a large undertaking, and we are thrilled to report that the hard work is paying off for the students and families we serve. As of August 31st, LaAmistad has already matched 80% of its nearly 200 students with their dedicated volunteers!
Our deepest appreciation to all of the incredible volunteers who have already signed up to be virtual tutors. Your willingness to continue making a difference in the lives of our students in spite of the uncertainty we now face is nothing short of remarkable. When students think back on what will hopefully be a brief moment of chaos during otherwise stellar academic careers, they will recall the open hearts and kind faces of those that helped them weather the storm. On behalf of all of us at LaAmistad, thank you.
While we are proud of what we've accomplished so far, there are still many LaAmistad Afterschool students waiting to be paired with a dedicated volunteer to invest in their academic success this fall. Can our students count on you to tutor them this year?
