Mission Statement

Gatewood Elementary is committed to helping students become independent learners. Sound Youth AmeriCorps works with Gatewood to improve the developmental assets in the lives of at-risk youths.

Our creative literacy initiative projects include:
the GONZO (a newspaper for kids by kids) published quarterly on 11x17 pulpy newsprint and
GONZO Radio to be launched this winter! We believe in the Thousand Languages of Children, that being, the many known and more subtle ways of expressing language and communicating effectively with one another.

And fun. We believe in fun. And handstands. And snow cones.

Description

AmeriCorps members facilitate After School Enrichment Programs for underserved youth. They are designed as project based learning environments to allow kids freedom to explore language and their interests in purposeful, celebrated action pieces like the GONZO newspaper and GONZO Radio :-)
