School After-School is a panel discussion on the feasibility of extracurricular academic programs in and serving the Detroit community. The question we ask is “How effective are these programs in addressing the achievement gap?”. The panel consists of the following esteemed program coordinators:
The program will be taking place as a collaboration between the University of Michigan’s National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) chapter and The Detroit Partnership (DP). The program encompasses the missions of both organizations, and serves to educate and encourage our fellow University students at our level to continue volunteering for academic enrichment programs through community outreach.
Dinner will be catered afterwards by Southern Fires Restaurant in Detroit.
