Sunnyhills Tutor/Mentor Program

Posted in: Sunnyhills
This fall the Sunnyhills Neigborhood Association is planning on launching a brand new program called the Sunnyhills Tutor/Mentor program.

This program is to recruit volunteer local High School students to come to Weller Elementary and assist kids in the K-5 grades that are falling behind their peers.

Weller Elementary according to state stats and test performs below other schools of its kind. We need to focus more community effort to help Weller school improve and that is part of what the Tutor/Mentor program is designed to do. We would also like to expand this program to Pomeroy ASAP, but need more money to do so.

Thanks to the Support of Bob Livengood the Sunnyhills Neigborhood Association was granted a $5,000 community block grant to help pay for the program. But to make sure we can keep the program going beyond one year we need to show the city of Milpitas that we can raise at least $5,000 in matching funds. To expand it to other schools we need to raise even more money.

Many companies will donate money to community groups that their employees support. If you work for such a company we might be able to get a corporation grant with your assistance.
