This small but mighty volunteer tutoring program helps young people meet the requirements of high school they need to qualify for university – a huge step toward a world of opportunity.
Founded and run by university students who wanted to make a difference, Shine has definitely fulfilled its vision. It grew from 12 students when it started in 2013 to 50 in the 2015-2016 school year. This growth is attributed to the high levels of success the students have achieved – passing the math and science prerequisites they need to complete in high school so they are eligible to apply to university.
Gordon Stirrett Wealth Management is pleased to be the Founding Sponsor of Shine, providing funds to help cover the costs of materials such as iPads and healthy snacks.
