E3 Academy Mentoring

VOLUNTEER at an exciting new opportunity at E3 Academy in North Adams, MA. The E3 Academy is a program of Drury High School located in the North Adams Armory. A competency-based program, it is designed for students who are over-age and under-credited and at risk of dropping out (or who may already have dropped out). Our 12 students range in age from 17 to 20. The two teachers (Humanities and STEM) work with the school counselor (SEL) to develop service-learning projects through which the students have opportunities to achieve many of their competencies.

1 Project Based Learning. We are looking for Williams students interested in working on a project that incorporates engineering, design or coding. We can be very flexible as we develop a project that both meets our needs (in terms of competencies) and makes the best use of Williams’ strengths and interests.
