Members Benefits

What are the commitments? We have weekly meetings, and we update our blog each week. We send out a monthly newsletter with a crossword. We will have occasional video conferences with partner schools, and will have one school visit each semester. We hope to set up a pen-pal system with our partner schools in which members will communicate with their mentees about once a week. What are your projects?
