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 should complete this online survey by Thursday, April 30th.

The National Conference on Citizenship will host an online "Learning Circle" this Wednesday about engaging your communities online about voting. This is particularly timely, as the pandemic drives rapid change in the way elections are being administered.

This presentation will build on incredible work that Kathryn and Brad have been doing over the last 6 weeks to rapidly adapt voter engagement programs to meet the needs of this moment.

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! Making masks is a great way to be of service and helps make your community safer. Make sure you wash your hands before creating and donating!

Let us know how many masks you donated.  You can share pictures of your creations with us by emailing (artreach@gwu.edu) or tagging us on Instagram (#ArtReachAtHome).
