The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Facilitating learning through safe adventuring in a kids' co-working space
Triple Stone Education Support exists to provide an environment for students to be free to improve their skills both inside and outside of the classroom. We provide educational support to all students regardless of financial limitations. Triple Stone provides motivated Title 1 students access to after-school educational adventures in a safe, affordable kids’ co-working space with interest-based learning opportunities and homework help alongside engaged supportive mentors. Kids want to spend time in the welcoming and comfortable environment at Triple Stone. Volunteers are sincere and accessible, encouraging kids to think for themselves. We value the opinions of kids and encourage them to have a voice in their community. We are committed to making available the types of workshops, often technology-based, in which participants are interested. We base the availability of these workshops on the ideas and interest of the kids. Throughout the organization, Triple Stone emphasizes respect for self, each other, and the world by way of promoting kindness, creativity, risk-taking, empowerment, healthy decision making, diversity, and personal leadership. We work to collaborate with other positive youth-supporting organizations.
