Oakwood

   BONNER CENTER COMMUNITY SITE  


Oakwood Forest Community Center

Mission
Offer a tutoring and mentoring service that affords students, both young and college age, an environment that promotes active learning, community engagement, and the pursuit of success. Our program also hopes to foster community enrichment by addressing neighborhood concerns and by connecting the Latino population of Oakwood to the greater Greensboro community to deal with local issues. 

Description
Guilford College community scholars, Bonner students, and volunteers participate in an after school tutoring program that supports the positive growth of elementary and middle school aged children physically and educationally through exercise and homework assistance.

The site is also operated in partnership with the Center for New North Carolinians, which coordinates ESOL classes and health services for the resident population.

Activities

November 9th-  Mobile Market visits Oakwood for the first time

  • Establish the tutoring program as a consistent source of healthful snacks for participating children.
  • Create a community food pantry.
  • Partner with Guilford's Community Kitchens to bring a Mobile Farmers Market
  • Utilize report cards to track individual progress and target problem subjects.
