Opportunity Categories:
Education, Youth Development
Time Commitment:
Weekday, Daytime
What we are looking for:
Stamford Academy serves about 140 high school students who have been unsucccessful within the traditional school model. The ratio of students with IEPs is about twice the rate of Stamford Public Schools, yet SPS is able to provide only one SPED teacher. Do you have a couple of hours to spare once a week to help with one-on-one tutoring? Hours are flexible but it needs to be during the school day. To meet our kids is to love them. They are wary and giving; have big dreams and struggle to stay on task; are talented and funny; and may have not had dinner the night before. If you'd like to know more, please contact Julia Wade at jwade@domuskids.org.
