Center Development Committee
The Center Development Committee identifies and fixes the issues in each of GIVE's centers. Some of the issues it works on include maximizing tutor to tutee ratios, evaluating session structure, and providing better teaching materials. In the past, it has developed tutor and Center Manager handbooks that detail how to properly manage tutoring sessions and how to create updated SOL curriculums. It aims to implement these updates and identify additional problems to tackle newer goals. These include but are not limited to putting together resource packages and building tutor to tutee and tutor to parent relationships.
Website and App Development Committee
The Website and App Development Committee is responsible for the upkeep and design of the GIVE website. Its members work to ensure that the most current information is displayed and that the website is running smoothly. Its members upload worksheets, documents, and other useful resources. One of the long-term goals of this committee is to develop an app or use another app for GIVE purposes.
Public Relations and Outreach Committee
The Public Relations/Outreach Committee advertises GIVE and spreads awareness about our community projects. In the past, its members have reached out to different elementary schools and families, attended back to school nights, and hosted bake sales and fundraisers. Currently, its members are working to make more aesthetically pleasing posters and to create multilingual promotional videos to recruit more people into the GIVE community.
The main focus of the Partnerships Committee is to find and collaborate with other nonprofit organizations that serve families who can benefit the most from GIVE’s services. These include but are not limited to families of low-income, immigrant, or non-english speaking status. Its members reach out to and inform them about GIVE’s mission and community service projects. Currently, this committee is working to find easy and accessible enrichment opportunities for the students in GIVE's community. Its members are also working to find more bilingual high school tutors to translate GIVE's content into different languages.
New Initiatives Committee
The New Initiatives Committee works to not only complete GIVE’s Summer Program but also to develop programs that challenge the idea that GIVE is simply a tutoring program. These programs include skill-building workshops and online video lessons that expand the impact GIVE has on the community.
The Communications Committee is focused on receiving feedback from previous center managers, tutors, parents, and librarians. They seek to determine the sufficient and lacking aspects of our program through suggestions from the GIVE community. Its members create polls and design surveys to send out through social media to identify key issues within each center. Currently, two of the goals of this committee are to clarify the procedure of submitting service hours for the tutors and to find pragmatic ways to deliver updates for the parents and students.
