The Shadow Project

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

Students in our Goal Setting program get to pick out prizes for their hard work during virtual learning. This is the last celebration of the school year! You will help issue an e-gift card to each student, which they use to pick out cool prizes.

Details:

This is an entirely virtual volunteer opportunity. You will use your own device and reliable Internet connection. You will meet with Shadow Project staff to have a 20-minute Zoom orientation to train and demonstrate how to issue e-gift cards. You do not need any special skills, but should feel comfortable using digital technology. You will receive a list of student names and the amount to load on their gift card. You'll then use Shopify to create that student's gift card. Lastly, you'll add the link to the gift card to a spreadsheet next to that student's name.

Who We Are:

The Shadow Project teams with teachers to transform school into a place where children with disabilities can thrive. Students who experience dyslexia, ADHD, autism and trauma experience autonomy, belonging, healthy academic growth, and build confidence. The Shadow Project has fostered academic and social-emotional growth for more than 12,500 students with learning challenges in grades K-8. Students set and meet ambitious goals, persevere through difficulty and gain up to two years in their reading ability. This school year, we'll work closely with special education teachers and families, supporting students to harness their resilience and champion their success during distance learning.
