On Wednesday, Sept. 7, Learn To Be Club began the year with their first meeting. Learn To Be Club is an organization devoted to giving underprivileged children access to free, virtual tutoring.

“We want to help bring education equity to kids around the nation because a lot of people don’t have the same level of education,” President Aditi Dalal ‘23 said. “Our club is really a way to get Westwood students to sign up and help that cause.”

Most members tutor students in elementary school and middle school subjects. This year, Learn To Be Club aims to have 40 students registered as tutors, and each tutor is expected to earn 200 volunteer hours by the end of the year. Learn To Be will not only give high school students volunteer hours but experience in skills that are applicable in many fields of work.

“We’re students, so we don’t think of ourselves as teachers,” Dalal said. “But I think [teaching is] a really great skill to have because it’s a completely different thing [than what] you’re used to and it teaches you to be versatile.”

Learn To Be Club will host their next meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 4:30 in room D1403.
