Gooroo Gives Back is an education initiative that connects high school student volunteers with disadvantaged younger peers who need academic mentorship.
Too many high school students from all backgrounds struggle to find meaningful volunteer opportunities in their own neighborhoods. Too many gifted students are deprived of educational opportunities based on their race or socioeconomic status. At Gooroo Gives Back, we aim to close the opportunity gap in education by bringing disadvantaged students and high school volunteers together. We place volunteers with our established nonprofit partners in the New York City area, where they can work one-on-one with students in need.
