On Monday, October 12th, with a day off school, FLOC Scholars participated in a Mock Trial event at the Wilkie Farr & Gallagher, LLP, law firm. Separated into defense attorneys and persecutors, Scholars had to argue different sides of a case, using only their words, logic, and the limited supply of evidence that was available.
It’s back to school time, which means it’s prime volunteer recruitment season here at For Love of Children. Here are just a few reasons you should volunteer with us in 2015-2016.
The Scholars Program had an eventful spring filled with exciting workshops and field trips. The sixth grade Scholars participated in workshops about leadership and identity. Students enthusiastically identified qualities of a good leader and provided examples of leaders in their families and communities.
During Spring Break, the 11th Grade Scholars set out on an extensive college tour through Virginia and North Carolina. Visiting 10 schools in total, the students gained exposure to many different kinds of college and universities.
One of the greatest challenges that students face when transitioning from elementary school to middle school is organization. From switching classes more often to having a locker, students need support to ensure they are developing healthy habits that will continue for their entire life.
