High School Students Co-Found Tutoring Organization

Two Saint Ann’s high school students, Maya B. and Maya C., recently co-founded a free tutoring service for children ages 5-13 called Project Double M. As the two friends witnessed the global effects of COVID-19 last spring, they wanted to alleviate the weight the pandemic had on organizations, families, and young children. And so began Project Double M. Beginning in the summer of 2020 with an entirely student-designed, student-run 8-week online summer program, young campers explored science, history, music, art, and culture. The project was so successful that in the fall the two co-founders decided to expand it and continue supporting their younger peers through effective tutoring. Project Double M now has over 25 volunteer tutors from high schools across New York City. Visit their website to learn more about Maya and Maya and Project Double M!
