Corporate Campus
Stand and Deliver Corporate Campus –
Making a Positive Difference in the Life of a Lawrence Student
 
The MCAS Challenge
Every student in Massachusetts must pass a standardized test called the MCAS exam to graduate from high school. This creates a special challenge for Lawrence students, as 85% of them speak English as a second language and come from low-income families that don’t have the resources to provide needed help.
Your company can partner with a Lawrence Public School and help Lawrence students develop skills needed to meet the MCAS Challenge.
Here’s how it works…..
Your company partners up with one of 13 Lawrence Public Schools
We match volunteer employees in your company with students from your partner school on a one-to-one basis, based upon common interests.
Students are transported once a week to your facility where the mentoring takes place.
The matches meet for an hour a week using tools provided by Stand and Deliver to work on MCAS math and language arts skills
Stand and Deliver provides training to volunteer mentors and monitor each match to insure the match meets the needs of both the mentor and the student.
