Congratulations to Nashman Affiliate Faculty, Dr. Maranda Ward, who recently published a a research article on youth identity formation through participatory action research. To read the full article, click here.
Dr. Ward used Promising Futures, the arts-based peer education program she developed, as her study site in conducting this research. Dr. Ward sought to understand how the identities of urban youth labeled as ‘at-risk’ was affected by their role as peer mentors for students traditionally labeled as ‘at-risk’ by academic standards.
Students who already have clearance to serve with DC Public Schools have an opportunity to serve as remote tutors/ mentors with DCPS students this summer.
DCPS service clearance lasts for two years, so students who served there from Fall 2018 are still eligible.
Interested participants will work in coordination with the Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic, D.C. Public Schools, select community partners, and participating universities to meet the tutoring and mentoring needs of select D.C. Public Schools, teachers, and students during this COVID period.
Interested participants should complete this online survey by Thursday, April 30th.
GW's ArtReach program is still actively engaging with the DC community through COVID.
If you have time and materials, we encourage you to make extra masks to donate to your neighbors, the elderly, and other vulnerable individuals in your community!
