What is Project RAMP?
Project RAMP (Reading Awareness Mentor Program) is a program that Global Medical Training funds once a month to assist students ages 5-13 with their academic, social and behavioral growth. Our goal is to encourage all children to participate educational and health enrichment activities to build confidence and self-esteem. These programs includes all levels of reading, writing, mathematics, and sciences. Mentors are encouraged to build intimate connections and provide an engaging and impactful experience for the students.
This Week’s Curriculum:
1. Writing Exercises: Father’s Day Letters/ Poems
2. Cooking Activity: Pizza Making
3. Physical Exercise: Basketball & Dodgeball
This month, we will be focusing more on the creative side. Students will be writing letters and making cards for Father’s Day (June 21) and expressing what kind of positive impact their parent’s have in their lives. Lunch will be served this Saturday as well! Cooking will give the children the ability to make their own healthy decisions by customizing their own pizzas with toppings such as mushrooms, sausages, and pineapples. Lastly, the students have been yearning for a Basketball/Dodge ball games against us “teachers”. Let’s dominate like the Warriors.
I have attached the agenda to this email. I encourage all the volunteers to take a couple minutes to familiarize yourself with it.
