STEM Tutors Wantedkids-in-front-of-hall-of-languages

The SNCC STEM program will officially begin again on February 9th!

The program runs every Thursday from 4:00 – 5:15 PM at the Syracuse Northeast Community Center at 716 Hawley Avenue Syracuse, NY 13203.

Tutors meet weekly to provide STEM-related tutoring, homework help (elementary subjects), and assist in educational activities. Last semester, the SNCC students participated in a day at SU with hands-on science experiments and campus/laboratory tours.

The sign-up sheet is available online.

Please email Ariel at Ariel.ashakoor@gmail.com to confirm your participation. Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance.

Free transportation is provided by the Shaw Center located in 237 Schine Student Center. Students must sign up at least 48 hours prior to the date of service. The community center is 5 minutes from campus at 716 Hawley Avenue, Syracuse NY 13203. Free food!! is provided on the first day of tutoring and on experiment days (dates TBD.)

The Syracuse Northeast Community Center (SNCC) is located next to Dr. Weeks Elementary School where it addresses issues of poverty, crime, poor housing, drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment, domestic violence, teenage pregnancy and other social and economic difficulties. Amongst its numerous support services—an emergency food pantry, social work team, senior center—the SNCC focuses on youth development and enriching, after-school activities.

Volunteering at the Northeast Community Center is an eye-opening and heart-warming experience that offers SU students the opportunity to step away from campus and directly serve the needs of the surrounding community. As you develop one-on-one relationships with the students at SNCC, staff, and other tutors, you gain skills in interpersonal communication, tutoring, and experience with working with children. Plus, you earn civic engagement hours!kids-at-the-tutoring-center
