COVID 19

It’s April 2020 and the COVID-19 virus is active in our communities, creating not only illness but uncertainty and anxiety. The entire world can now see clearly how economic, educational and healthcare disparities in our communities are resulting in a much higher percentage of illness and death in communities of color.
Educate Youth has a virtual Clubhouse for the Having Opportunities for Positive Education, H.O.P.E., program. The commitment to the academic, the psychological, and the physical wellbeing of each student is our priority.  The Virtual H.O.P.E. program will provide:
  • H. O. P. E. program will virtually meet 3-6 each day for community work time, poetry and art classes, and silent reading. Classes will be added as requested.
  • Individual tutoring times will be created when needed. Tutors will be available for one on one support
  • Daily emotional and physical check-in to make sense of the stay at home policy. There are CoronaVirus discussions giving accurate information. The CDC is the source for information.
  • To receive the stipend, the afternoon sessions need to be attended
  • Once weekly, if needed, supplies will be brought to you. These include a fruit of choice, school and hygiene supplies, and items required for the Educate Youth classes.

Thank you for giving the gift of education. Your donation to Educate Youth goes right to work supporting after school programs, promoting positive education, and enabling better life outcomes. With your commitment, students will continue to have a positive lasting impact on our community.
