The research triangle is a hub for science and innovation. We have access to stellar universities, biotech campuses, and government institutions that are on the cutting edge of research and development. Despite all of these resources, many local high schools struggle to meet basic academic standards.
Since 2013, graduate students from Duke Neurobiology have worked with Lakeview School, a secondary school for at-risk students, to offer one-on-one mentoring. Through these interactions, our graduate students provide additional support, knowledge, and resources to students who may otherwise never get the opportunity to interact with scientists and think about broader career options.
Lakeview Tutoring Program Mission
To address the educational gap by motivating students to become more independent, self-confident and efficient learners.
The Lakeview tutoring program consists of dedicated graduate students form the Triangle area who want to inspire students to expand their career goals by providing support and resources that may not otherwise be available.
We need more volunteers to come in during class periods throughout the school day.
For more information about how to get involved, contact Dianna Amasino, Steve Marinero, or Mary Rose Branch.
