As featured on GMA3 last week, here is an amazing project created by teens for kids! Yes, teenagers Sarah Shapiro and Skye Loventhal are the co-founders who kiddingly call themselves the "Dynamic Duo". Throughout their friendship, they have always collaborated on new ideas and inventions. During the pandemic, they recognized a need to keep kids motivated and active, as well as taking stress off parents by providing daily activity sessions and one-on-one tutoring. Together, they brainstormed the idea where high school students mentor elementary school students and best of all, it's fun and it's free!
The current COVID-19 pandemic is keeping children at home, leading them to no longer have their usual time spent in school, sports, art classes, etc. The Covid NineTEEN project provides FREE teen-led activities and one-on-one tutoring meant to support elementary school students. Their teen mentors help keep children motivated and take stress off of parents. They are a group of motivated teens who are using this valuable time to make a difference in the world. They hope to serve as mentors for elementary school children to help them fill their time and continue to flourish despite the uncertainty of the outside world.
