Free SAT Prep Courses for High School Students
We have organized various SAT and ACT Math prep courses at various locations such as Peekskill's Field Library, Shrub Oak's John C. Hart Library, and Mahopac's Public Library. Children are given a plethora of information regarding the types of questions that are asked in the section, and how to answer each type of question.
Our club members volunteer at FIELD LIBRARY, PEEKSKILL, helping students with their homework on weekdays evening.
For this School year 2018-2019, starting from September 12th, our members will be volunteering at the library on Wednesdays from 4 p.m to 5 p.m
"Science for Young Minds" Experiment Workshop
Our club organizes Science Workshops at Libraries. Experiments are simple and fun for kids 3 to 9 years old. These workshops are intended to EDUCATE, ENTERTAIN and INSPIRE the children's imagination.
Thanks to our Guide and mentor Mrs. Lata Aggarwal. She has been teaching children for more than 7 years and has conducted these workshops at schools and libraries
"Lend a Hand" Charity Drive
Our club is organizing a Charity drive on behalf of Chennapuri Annadana Samajam, located in Chennai, South India. This organization is the home for 220 orphaned children from the ages of 11 to 18 and provides food, clothes, shelter, school supplies and education.
Thanks to our friends and families for their generous contribution, we collected $1,501.00!
"Read Aloud" Book Drive
Our club organized a book drive for Field library's "Make a Difference - READ ALOUD - PEEKSKILL READS - BOOK GIVE AWAY" program. Members brought books that they owned, and had collected from friends and neighbors to the library. Our club donated hundreds of books for this great cause, and our members read to the kids at the event.
Tour Around the World
Our club volunteered at Peekskill's Field Library, which allowed children to experience the culture of different parts of the world. They can try food, learn a few facts, and look at a few artifacts from the country.
Kids come and are issued a "passport." They travel from country to county. They will be given labels to use as "stamps" for their visit to the country.
