Millennium Fellowship Project
The Becker College Homework Help Center is a project that provides an environment where the kids in the local community center who were bilingual and struggled with accomplishing homework come after school for an hour and focus just on homework and getting the one on one help they need. The projects would also help their parents understand what extra work that would be needed at home due to the language barrier in between the teacher and parents. The project’s goal is to help many of the children in the community that have came from Puerto Rico after the hurricane transition into their school.
About the Millennium Fellow
Nellyris Diane Garcia is a sophomore at Becker College in the Nursing major. She has always been involved in helping others with volunteering at girls inc, neighborhood summer camp, local nursing home, and joining the we are global club at Becker College. Watching her mom help people as a social worker always made her happy and helping others feel better or accomplish their goals always warmed my heart. As a bilingual child, she struggled with school work and spent more time studying and reading than playing. With her project, she wants to help the children that were like herself and give them that extra hand after school so they won’t struggle as much and enjoy being a child. She finds helping others truly a blessing to her.
