  • Discovery Program at Scott Elementary School
    Hello everyone! Our service project for this month will be volunteering with the Discovery Program at William J Scott Elementary. For those not familiar with the Discovery Program, it is a volunteer-led tutoring program, where volunteers assist students by providing homework help, mentorship, playing educational games with them, etc. For those that went to La Amistad, the Discovery Program should be similar, so it should be a great time! If you are interested, please RSVP ASAP!! Discovery requires me to submit a list of all volunteers coming so that they can do a background check on everyone. So no additional work is needed, just drop an RSVP if you’re coming to Dis-co-ver-y!
