In collaboration of multiple Chinese organizations in Howard County, our community raised over $27,000 and donated thousands of PPEs to hospitals.
We started an on-line learning program within a couple of weeks of school closure. We used our pools of existing high school tutors to teach their peers or younger children. It includes one-to-one or small group tutoring. It also formed an exercise group. The story was reported by the Voice of America: https://www.voachinese.com/a/5389195.html (Starting from minute 24, the interview was conducted in English with Chinese subtitle in Chinese)
* Please be noted: CAPA’s tutoring program was established 3 years ago to support low income and ESOL students in Howard County. This is an extension of this existing program.
