AVID School Supply Drive
AVID is a college-readiness program that works in inner-city schools across the country to close the achievement gap. The School District of Philadelphia is one of many urban districts in dire straits financially. The school-supply drive is to help alleviate some of that stress by providing AVID classes with much needed school supplies that many teachers are buying with money from their own pockets.
Some ideal donations would be:
-white board markers, erasers, erasing spray
-pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners
-lose leaf paper
All donations will go directly to AVID classes!
WHAT: One week long medical mobile clinics to Peru, Ecuador, and Tanzania! Shadow medical professionals, assist in community development projects, work on public health projects, and experience new cultures! These trips are open to students of all majors and there are no requirements to sign up. Come out to hear more about the program, how to register, and ask questions. Program prices will be discussed at the meeting.
WHEN: MONDAY March 16th and THURSDAY March 19th at 5 pm in Tech Center Breakout Room 215B. You only need to attend one of these sessions.
