Education Committee

Education Committee “The whole world opened to me when I learned to read”, Mary McLeod Bethune. The Education Committee operates an afterschool tutorial program for children, ages 6-10, at the Thomas White Jr. Foundation, Jamaica, New York. Outreach is conducted with local elementary schools to identify children in need of assistance, as well as advertising the program through local organizations, continuous mailings to the local communities, and word of mouth. Members of Queens County Section volunteer as tutors to provide homework assistance, as well as to strengthen math and reading skills. Students majoring in Education at York College (CUNY) also can have the opportunity to volunteer with the program. Elementary school staff and parents of the participating children have provided feedback regarding the positive impact of the tutorial program in helping children to improve during the school year Contact the Education Committee at
