The current COVID-19 pandemic is keeping children at home, leading them to no longer have their usual time spent in school, sports, art classes, etc. The Covid NineTEEN project provides FREE teen-led activities and one-on-one tutoring meant to support elementary school students. Our teen mentors help keep children motivated and take stress off of parents. We are a group of motivated teens who are using this valuable time to make a difference in the world. We hope to serve as mentors for elementary school children to help them fill their time and continue to flourish despite the uncertainty of the outside world.
How does our programming work THis summer?
1) Daily tutoring in English, Math, Science, and History (in multiple languages) from 12-1 pm PT (your child can either come in for 30 minutes or stay for the entire hour)
2) Activity sessions from 9 am to 5 pm PT every day!
