LEARNING STRATEGIES PREP LSP, Inc. © is a nonprofit 501c organization based in New York City. We provide special education services to students. Services are open to all students, but especially benefit at-risk students, those with mental health disorders, and students with IEPs. An IEP is an individual education plan for students who have ADHD and other learning disabilities. We offer programs to help improve these students' grades in school and build up their self esteem and confidence as learners. Programs include Woodworking, Soccer, and Cooking, and more; and we integrate learning strategies and group mentoring into all LSP programs.
Volunteers get to teach a class and do fun activities with kids. Programs/classes are small, so you get to see kids grow and develop as you help them with their learning strategies and life skills. I have been a volunteer myself, so I know what it is like to teach kids, and see how excited they get when you can inspire them to do anything! This is the experience you get when working with LSP.
