It will not be news to you that this is a particularly difficult time for the children of our community. Despite our success rallying together, kids are experiencing social isolation, continued fear of illness and loss, as well as anxiety returning to a course load that may seem unmanageable. LEF is so impressed with the hard work of our schools and community but make no mistake, young learners need us now more than ever.
LEF has reached out to parents, administrators, and community partners to understand how to support students in this unprecedented time. The schools will need to prioritize grade-level math and reading remediation. LEF will step in to help with:
Remote learning technology & outdoor classroom needs
Supplemental programming in languages, arts, civics & STEM
Individual and group tutoring to get kids caught up provided by professionals and a new multigenerational program.
Our fundraising goals are as follows:
