This is a grant from The Awesome Fund, dedicated solely to student clubs and organizations, and funded by a generous Hopkins alumnus, a matching donation from his employer, and the family & friends of Ethan Lang
HEF’s Awesome Fund for student clubs has awarded $1,000 to Bigs Tutoring, an inspiring group of Hopkins High School upperclassmen and alumni providing tutoring via video. This grant is the equivalent of 67 hours of tutoring, which will allow Bigs to offer free and reduced-price services to any student who needs it while proving a stipend to tutors.
When school went to distance-learning last spring, Bigs was created by students to provide resources for their younger counterparts struggling with the transition and/or with the curriculum: from coloring the letter of the week with Kindergarteners to discussing college options and future plans with current high schoolers. This summer, many of the Bigs found their planned internships and jobs cancelled, and instead offered fun learning opportunities such as Mad Science Club, to support summer learning. Bigs are ready to continue during the school year.
