Millennium Fellowship Project: New Washington Heights
The kids in the afterschool program really needed resources to help challenge them academically. This year we conducted a book drive to allow the kids to have acess to more challenging reading material that they were not getting at home. We worked with the kids on their reading and math skills after school. We meansured that through their report cards and homework grade improvements.
