Wilson Charter School

ABOUT THE AGENCY
Andrew H. Wilson Charter School
is an open-enrollment public charter school located in the Broadmoor neighborhood that serves over 600 students, pre-K through 8th grade.

WHAT YOU DO
Loyola service learners' primary responsibility will be to provide academic support for students and teachers in classrooms. Service learners will support students individually and in small groups by reinforcing material that is taught in the classroom. Two specific needs include school garden assistance and English-as-a-Second-Language support. Additionally, service learners can form bonds with students and provide positive role models.

WHAT YOU LEARN
Students will learn about child development, students' social and emotional needs, classroom management, mentoring, and the charter school culture in New Orleans. They will also become familiar with K-8 curricula, grade-level expectations, Louisiana's state education standards, and the "community school" philosophy. Most importantly, students will learn how to connect with and empower our youth.
