Student Outreach and Academic Reinforcement – helps 5th grade students and their families achieve success through educational support, mentoring, and enrichment opportunities. Through partnerships with the Morris School District, the College of St. Elizabeth, Farleigh Dickinson, Drew University, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Prevention is Key, Table of Hope, and Bethel Church of Morristown we have been able to connect disadvantaged youth with caring community resources. Students work with college students and teachers to identify areas requiring enrichment and work collaboratively to strengthen those areas. Tutoring takes place Mondays and Thursdays 3:30-5:30pm.
