Description: Working closely with parents and teachers to support classroom success, Lauren’s House staff and volunteers offer after-school tutoring, mentoring and homework help for students at all learning levels. Through this, students also have the opportunity to build positive relationships with both male and female mentors and receive a healthy meal if the tutoring session extends into the lunch hour. As part of this program, participants also take part in fun-filled enrichment and community service activities as well as receive support services on request. Learn more about these activities below.
Description: Every Summer, approximately 30 students participate in a fun-filled learning experience consisting of tutoring, mentoring, community service and weekly enrichment Activities (such as swimming, attending a sports game or participating in a cooking class). Program Activity Leaders work with students to improve in their academics and ensure readiness for the upcoming school year, all while conducting fun activities to make sure the Summer is still fun and enjoyable! The Lauren’s House Summer Program is available to any eligible student in the San Mateo, East Palo Alto community and takes place 5 days/week throughout the entire Summer. Food is provided each day.
