I am raising money for my after school tutoring program. The funds will go to creating a larger space for my students and buying the necessary equipment to assist with their different levels of learning.
Hi my name is Angela and I am a tutor for a program I started out of my home in Detroit called Helping Hands. Over the summer I had the pleasure to work with students from the neighborhood who needed assistance in Math, Reading or Science. I also worked with children who just wanted to be in a learning environment.
The Helping Hands started off very small with 2-3 students then it grew into 13 students. Over the summer we had a fundraiser “The Lemonade Shack” to raise funds to buy supplies and books and learning programs like adaptedmind. It was a fundraiser but also a learning experience that each one of these young children could be an entrepreneur. They made signs, worked an actual cash register and counted inventory. The funds went to purchasing supplies for the classroom. Before the fundraiser I paid for everything myself snacks, pencils, crayons, printing assignments, boards etc.
This program is non profit I do not charge the parents anything. I held class in my living room & outside which was tons of fun and learning for the children however with winter approaching I would like to continue my works inside without turning away any children. I would utilize the funds for books, supplies, furniture, a computer, crayons, learning manuals and to create a permanent space for the children. Any amount donated would be very much appreciated.
