Event description
Flatiron Gives is partnering with the GO Project to volunteer for the summer Day of Service.

About this Event

The GO Project strives to level the playing field for low-income, underperforming public school students by providing year-round, comprehensive academic assistance and social services to 722 elementary and middle school students. GO’s full day summer program, Saturday tutoring program, and family support components give children and families from under-resourced public schools the guidance they need to achieve grade level standards and to successfully navigate the NYC public school system.

GO Summer is a rigorous, five-week, full day academic and enrichment program led by a staff of certified teachers. Teachers lead lessons, oversee small group work led by other classroom staff, and support relationship-building between the adult support team and the students. GO Summer runs Monday to Friday, from 8:45am-4:45pm. In the morning, students are in academic classrooms, and in the afternoon, students rotate through a number of different enrichment classes such as fencing, drama, art, soccer, and flag rugby. (A full list of enrichment classes is sent to the group in advance so that employees can list their preferences.)

The GO Project relies on members of our community to donate their time to help make our program a success. Volunteers are essential to helping us provide the small group and individualized instruction that are the cornerstone of our model. We look forward to hosting a group of your employees so that they can experience firsthand what an impact a dedicated team of teachers, social workers, program staff, and volunteers can have on the academic and social-emotional success of a student.

Volunteer Day Schedule (for afternoon enrichment programming):

1:30pm Orientation/GO Project Overview.

3:00pm Volunteers are placed in enrichment classes (of their choice) where they work with students on projects and activities under the guidance of an Enrichment Teacher.

4:45pm Volunteers say goodbye to their students and meet for a final debrief.
