GO Project, founded in 1968 by parents and neighbors of Grace Church School, has a mission to close the opportunity gap for New York City's students. We do this by channeling additional resources to the city's youngest learners from the most under-resourced public schools who are most at risk of academic failure, and provide them with a high-quality academic, social and emotional enrichment and family support program that equips them with the skills needed for future success. Students participate in Saturday morning tutoring sessions, a 5-week academic and enrichment summer program, and year-round family support services each year.
As a volunteer, you can have a big impact on the students. Under the guidance of a GO Head Teacher, volunteer tutors work in the classroom with small groups of students on the teacher's lesson, providing close attention in order to help the students thrive. You can attend a one-time GO-St Luke's Day of Service this winter to try it on for size. You can also choose to be a Committed Volunteer, to come each Saturday in a given semester, with 3 allowed absences per session --- or, be a Floater Volunteer, and just come on the Saturdays that you are available.
