More good news from Rainier Beach High School (as well as Garfield and Cleveland) - some of their students are volunteering to tutor at RB Library. From Jerry Large at the Times:
Math Buddies started as a pilot project last fall to address some issues volunteers in the library’s homework-help program were seeing.
Elementary-school students are paired with high-school students who lead games that help the younger students strengthen their math skills.
The program’s benefits are expected to go beyond academics. The librarians visit schools, community centers and other venues recruiting teens. They don’t look for the top math students, because the teens will be working with elementary-level math. Instead, they look for students who live near the library. “We want the kids to see positive role models from their neighborhood.”
