Dear SoE Students,
This is a great opportunity and would look good on your resume!!!! If you like working with kids and have availability this summer, the Lindy Scholars Program needs YOU! Please volunteer!!!!
About the Program:
The Lindy Scholars Program is a youth development program for middle school aged youth who attend select West Philadelphia schools. The three pillars of the program are academic excellence, character education and opportunity and access. During the year, Drexel University students come to their schools after-school to do literacy, math and other lessons. On selected Saturdays, students spend the day on campus. Our summer program is open to all enrolled students (rising 7th-9th grade), their younger siblings and prospective new 6th grade students. It will focus on the three pillars of programming and combine academic pursuits with recreational and general interest hobbies. Volunteers will be assigned either to selected groups or students or to help lead specific sessions. The program runs Monday-Friday July 6-31.
Program participants will select four workshops each week that will each run the whole week at a specific time. Mandatory workshops include reading, writing, math, science lab, computers and service learning. Opt-in workshops include tennis, basketball, team sports, drawing, painting, anime, board games and more! If you have a specific interest in any particular workshop (ie- you’re a crafter like me!), please let me know so I can schedule coverage accordingly!
We’re asking all volunteers to commit to at least five shifts throughout the summer. Shift times are 9am-12:45pm or 12:15pm-4pm. Full days are also greatly appreciated. To sign up for specific shifts, please visit: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4ba8a928a3fe3-summer
Please save the date for Wednesday July 1 from 5pm-7pm at Drexel Pizza. We’d love for any available volunteers to get to know one another, check out the finalized summer workshop schedule and hang out!
Background Checks- IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!
If you have not completed a background check to work with minors, please look out for an email from Monignia Pressley from Human Resources for instructions once you let me know you’re available. This MUST be done promptly!
Please let me know if you’re interested by signing up for shifts at the signupgenius link or contacting me at email@example.com / 215.301.6503. I hope to work with you this summer!
