The event is being co-hosted by Jeremy Seidman and Michael Rand to raise money and awareness for Coaching4Change. C4C helps increase high quality learning opportunities for disadvantaged youth living in high need communities.
Students living in low-income communities suffer from a 6,000 hour learning gap, in comparison to middle class peers by the time they reach 6th grade .
Coaching4Change trains college and high school students to be coaches and tutors. Then we match them with struggling middle school students to provide targeted interventions to help improve academic and social outcomes.
In 5 years, Coaching4Change has received national recognition for our high quality programming, which provides after school opportunities for struggling students in low-income communities.
