BSL Virtual Academy
The Beta Sigma Lambda Educational Foundation aims to serve the needs of 50 students in the Greater Hartford Area by providing them with tutoring 2 days per week. Students will be tutored virtually by trained personnel in the areas of literacy, social emotional education and coding. Students will be exposed to culturally responsive content through literacy performance tasks. Their social emotional needs will be addressed by licensed social work professionals. The Virtual Academy will prepare students with the necessary tools to work in the technology sector, a sector devoid of people of color. In addition to tutoring, students will be provided with mentors to assist them as they traverse through the unfamiliar territory of distance learning.
