ARC (Achievement at Romano Circle) Program

Program Description

ARC is an after-school enrichment program for Lebanon youth in the first grade through high school who live in Romano Circle, a low-income housing development in West Lebanon.  ARC enhances the academic success of the children through homework help, field trips, and early college exposure.

Volunteers work with the Romano Afterschool Program as "Homework Coaches" one day a week.  This provides academic support to the children and develops bonds between the volunteers and children.

ARC volunteers also coordinate a few small field trips to campus each term, such as visits to science labs or the radio station.  In addition, one day per week Dartmouth volunteers pick up the older children and lead them in activities or workshops targeting the older children's interests.

Requirements

Time Commitment

A mandatory training session at the beginning of your first term volunteering with ARC. Weekly 2 hour "Homework Coach" commitment or weekly 2 hour "big kid" trips commitment. One or two Friday field trips per term.

Transportation

If eligible, mentors are required to become driver approved. Access to Tucker vehicles (after driver approval) is available.
