DescriptionThe Schooba Academy is a nonprofit organization with a mission of fostering a sustained engagement in science for students from low-income communities through the learning of SCUBA diving. We believe that a knowledge of science empowers people to be critical and conscious citizens, and that an authentic, long-term engagement is the best foundation for this knowledge.
The next pool session for The Schooba Academy is March 13@Waterside Plaza. Stay tuned for more updates!
Hi Avra! I would love to speak with you further about help - we can certainly use it! I can talk a mile a minute about the program, and I'd love to fill you in on my ambitions for it, and how volunteers can be used. Could we find a time to chat on the phone? Please feel free to send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org. In a nutshell, though: After the pilot program (or possibly even for the end part of it) I will be looking for a couple different types of volunteers: - Some people will become tutors, and will commit to visiting a school for 1 hour a week for 9 weeks to tutor a group of no more than 4 kids. I will provide a curriculum and all materials for this. - Some people will become chaperons for our weekend field trips. - Some people will help with planning/fundraising/admin stuff, etc. I will definitely check out those resources! Can you send me an email to discuss further? Thanks for your interest!
