This year, the Johns Creek Chapter has participated in many tutoring events for students in the local community and even those with learning disabilities. Tutors from the Johns Creek Chapters taught everything from core academic classes such as English and Math to valuable life skills in public speaking. Also, the chapter had fun events such as music performances to serve the elderly and kids with disabilities. Recycling events were also conducted to raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America organization, with scrap pieces of metal being traded in for money.
In 2021, more than 15 tutors from the LA chapter of Student Corps participated in the Spring Tutoring program.
With over 100 students served, we are proud to give back to our local community.
A wide range of classes supported a variety of students’ endeavors – including Chess, Speech & Debate, AP Biology, AP Physics, Music Theory and Composition, AI/Machine Learning, Arts and Crafts, Fun Math, Fun Games, Coding for Beginners, Elementary School Math, and more.

On October 10th, October 24th, and November 21st, the Wellesley Stars Chapter worked with Charles River Conservancy to clean up at Charles River, Magazine Beach, and Herter Park Amphitheater. Students worked tirelessly to help pick up any trash and leaves, from bottles to broken down scooters, everything was cleaned with efficiency. The Wellesley Stars students didn’t feel discouraged after seeing the shocking amounts of trash everywhere, but rather felt encouraged to help out more! We hope their kindness and compassion can inspire you too!
Through the years of 2018 and 2019, the volunteers of Student Corps’ NorCal chapters participated in a variety of events and long term goals to help families in need and spread awareness on different causes. With our partnership with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Bay Area (BBBS), the students collectively raised 500 dollars to donate in the form of a scholarship to a child in need. This included a year long bottle recycling program that contributed to the majority of the money raised. Additionally, in both the years of 2018 and 2019, the students of our NorCal chapters joined BBBS in their annual Bowl for Kids Sake event to help celebrate the year long fundraiser. Alongside this partnership, many more individual events were held. Our students joined the 2nd Harvest Food Bank in helping sort food for people in need, helped the Stanford Asian Liver Center to spread awareness on HBV, and many more events that heavily benefitted the community in a vast variety of ways.
