Sponsorship also connects families with a Learning for Life Coordinator and our out-of-school learning programs. Cooper’s coordinator enrolled him in our after-school Learning Club. These clubs offer a supportive space where students receive homework help from volunteer tutors. And it was just what Cooper needed.
“At Learning Club Cooper has made friends and he can relax. Now the learning is coming because he is not on edge all of the time. The tutors are so encouraging, which has really boosted Cooper’s confidence,” said Amanda.
“He’s a different child now. His grades at school have picked up dramatically in all subjects.”
