Note from the Founder
Oh, the places we will go! As we dig our heels deeper into the school year I am thrilled by the impact of the work that we are doing and inspired by the effort, excitement, commitment, and enthusiasm of our volunteers. This semester we had 67 new volunteers join our organization. That's 67 young, brilliant Tuskegee University students eager to get into the Tuskegee community to lend a hand, change lives and have theirs changed as well. That thought alone humbles me.
With these 67 volunteers we have begun our mentoring and tutoring services at Booker T. Washington High School, engaged in meaningful community activities, and expanded our program. That's right, we've expanded, not only are we continuing to work with high school students, we have expanded our program to Tuskegee Institute Middle School.
This semester we are piloting our program with 10 trail blazing volunteers. Through our middle school program, volunteers will provide individualized assistance in-class and lead hands on learning activities with students.
As we embark on this school year I can only imagine the potential of this program to change more lives. I hope for this to be a program that defines a volunteer's "Tuskegee experience" and provides middle and high school students with the tools they need to succeed.
