Weeruwaay Fellowship Program

WE GOT YOU

Focus their skills, time and energy on direct and indirect services to students.

Weerouwaay counselors are very well selected and very well trained young leaders who already have their bachelor’s in education, psychology, or sociology. They are placed in different SHIFTCLUBS and provide practical support to improve academic performance by identifying barriers to learning. Weerouwaays work with students individually or in small groups to help children work through difficult issues so that they can stay focused in the classroom and evolve in a healthy learning environment.

WHAT WEEROUWAAYS BRING TO THE TABLE?

1. Ensure that students have excellent educational experiences
2. Collaborate with schools to give access to the emotional support students need when they need it.
3. Provide support to teachers by serving an important part of the complete team that addresses the educational goals and needs of their students. 

THEIR MISSIONS ARE TO:

ASSIST

Weerouwaay assists students that struggle with their academic program by helping them master the proper decision-making process regarding their academic life and choices. They will help students process their plans by evaluating students’ abilities, interests, and personalities to help them develop realistic academic and career goals.

SUPPORT
