Summer Tutoring Program for First-year High School Students

Nuvance Health Global Health Program and the Latinx committee at Danbury has decided to provide a four-week program hosted from mid-July through mid-August. Each week, the committee will solicit instructors to covers themes such as leadership, Finance, Health & Wellness, and Civic Engagement. These lessons will include a lecture and/or workshop concluding with a practicum experience with local organizations and businesses tied to the theme. We believe this will provide optimal engagement for the students.

Recruitment processes will be conducted in coordination with third-party organizations that are associated with Latinx communities. Ten incoming Latino/a and academically promising high school students will continue engagement throughout their high school careers via mentor-to-mentee relationships, check-ins, chat groups, internship opportunities, and community service programs. This will provide them with the eligibility to earn up to $1,000 in scholarships for attendance and participation in the program.
