My name is Neeraj Kapoor and I’m writing on behalf of the Learn To Be Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing free, one-on-one, online tutoring to K-8 students in underserved schools and communities. Through the use of a real-time virtual whiteboard with voice and webcam conferencing abilities, Learn To Be provides academic support to students struggling in math, science, and language arts. Over the past three years, Learn To Be has recruited over 600 volunteer tutors, and enabled them to teach over 20,000 sessions for over 11,000 hours of instruction to our students.
We just launched a new site that was so graciously put together by some friends who volunteered some time. However, we are still in need of some help in implementing some features. I’ve begun learning rails, but knowledge is about 5 months deep and any support that could be lent would be so awesome. We’re on a mission to provide high quality, individualized attention to kids in need and I think we’re on the right track.
If there is anyone who may be interested in helping out, please let me know. We are an LA based organization (although location doesn’t matter), but if any interested people are in the LA area, I’d love to meet and discuss more about what we do and where we’re headed.
Thanks so much!
