Congrats to The Homeroom, our newest Rally Saint Louis idea that has made it into our funding phase.
The Homeroom is an online educational and social network that offers high school students a program to assist with their transfer from community college to university.
The website, http://thehomeroom.org/St_Louis.html will also offer tutoring services, learning games and a summer reading book club as well as financial assistance to help with tuition expenses.
Their goal is to raise $5,000 so they can enhance their website making it interactive for students. Any additional funds will go towards financial support for tuition assistance.
Don’t have the extra money right now to donate? The Homeroom is also in need of volunteer tutors. You can help the high school students with homework questions at a time that is convenient for you. Check their site for requirements.
This is our newest idea, but we still have others in the funding phase. Go pledge for your favorite ideas and take to Twitter and Facebook to tell your friends! We do this every month, so keep voting for your prized picks and submit new ones!
