Long Island City High School is emphasizing the importance of role-models in the lives of its younger students.
A group of school alumni created Practice Makes Perfect at Long Island City High School, a seven-week, summer program which provides students entering fifth grade with tutors and mentors by pairing them with tenth graders.
The tenth graders, who underwent a weeklong training program led by Teach for America, will be paid for intensive one-on-two skill development. Sessions will also be managed by volunteer undergraduate interns.
