We believe it takes a village to help youth from at-risk communities break the cycle of poverty….
Schools and tutoring programs already exist to empower youth with an educational foundation to support their future, but oftentimes with limited resources and personnel. We want to LINK ARMS with local schools, tutoring programs, and youth-based non-profit corporations in Saint Louis City and County by sending trained and approved volunteers to support teachers in their classrooms. Our volunteers will be trained to work with small groups of students who have deficits in both Math and ELA. Our volunteers will also be trained to help monitor and assess student work and help provide one-on-one support in the classroom setting.
We are currently linking arms with….
Weekly 1-4 hours of customized support with the same trained volunteers
All our volunteers are background checked and insured
Customized Plans can include one on one and/or small group support in reading and math intervention
Customized Plans can also include generalized classroom support
Quarterly Follow Up with Our Team to Revise Customized Support Plan
All giving is tax deductible.
“Linking Arms has always been a need in St. Louis schools, but even more so after Covid-19. Students are behind and teachers need support.”
