Description

Since 1956, Learning Leaders (formerly the New York City School Volunteer Program) has been recruiting and training adults to provide individualized tutoring to students in schools citywide.

School/Groups

In addition to its core tutorial program, Learning Leaders operates projects designed to meet special needs and interests of the city’s public school children.

Art Works introduces third-grade public school students to four art forms: architecture, sculpture, painting and decorative art. Through a series of five class workshops and a guided visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, children learn to interpret, compare and discuss works of art. The program's emphasis is on developing visual literacy skills. Teachers receive a program guide with suggested follow-up activities for students.
