> The Marshall After School Program is an exciting new program addressing the
> great need of academic support at the John Marshall Elementary School in
> Dorchester, MA. After Mayor Menino began the "Step Up Initiative" and
> identified the Marshall School as one of the lowest achieving schools in
> Boston, our program began as a pilot program in the spring '08. We help at
> risk and low achieving students succeed academically– with an emphasis on
> reading and writing comprehension – by closely working with students on
> their homework. The program also provides an engaging mentoring component,
> in which the students will develop strong relationships with other
> volunteers in the program. As our program resides directly within the
> school, we have access to teachers who are responsible for their day-to-day
> learning. The program collaborates with the Harvard Achievement Support
> Initiative, which not only provides us additional trainings on child
> development, but also many valuable learning resources and support.
