EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2012
We are a team of ten young individuals that work at 109th Street Elementary School in Los Angeles, California. We are apart of a larger organization known as City Year. City Year is a national non-profit, education based organization that works towards closing the achievement gap that exists within high need schools. We work as mentors and tutors within the classroom, and in addition, we have an afterschool program. Along with academic support, we also hold various school wide events in order to motivate and reward our students, and to support a positive learning environment. Two events that are coming up very soon include our Starfish Corps Graduation on May 24th (for those students in our afterschool program), and our End of the Year Carnival on June 5th. We are hoping to have two very amazing events so we can end the year off strong. We are asking foryour help and support in order to congratulate our kids for an amazing year.
