Mentorship for kids

Kids Korner

“Kids Korner celebrated our 10th anniversary during the 2015-16 school year. We are a tutoring and mentoring program that serves the students that live in the extremely low-income area of Harmony Gardens located in North Hollywood. Our goal is to focus on these children’s futures; their future education, health, and aspirations. We help with homework and in addition, our Curriculum Team designs lessons on real world topics such as sustainability and applications of finance. During the second part of site, we organize an activity or game that is engaging and incorporates the lesson. Students’ age ranges from 5 to 17, and with our individualized tutoring, we are able to motivate and provide the necessary attention these kids need to be successful.”

Commitment Required:

Spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis through our mailing system. You can attend as many sites as you want, but to be considered an active member, you must attend at least half of the sites per quarter (3), 2 socials, and 1 fundraiser. Active members receive discounted prices and priority on field trip. In addition, active members are able to attend special socials and apply for an intern position at the end of the quarter.

Ways to Get Involved:

We accept tutor applications at the beginning of every quarter! If you have any questions, feel free to email us at thekorner@gmail.com

Leadership Opportunities:

Active members are able to apply to be an intern for a board position. The different committees that make up the director board includes: Administration, Finance, Curriculum, Publicity, and Transportation. As an intern, you will help plan sites and field trip and see the inner operations of Kids Korner. You will get the opportunity to know board members better and have the chance to join board as a director the following quarter.
