Educational assistance, especially during this time of COVID-19, has become an alarming need for our children in the urban setting. Many children have limited to no access to the Internet or sufficient technology for online instruction. Some children do not have anyone at home to help them with their assigned learning packets from their schools. Knowing that children have been without traditional education since mid-March, Notre Dame Urban Education Center hopes to be an avenue of recovery for children to reclaim their education.
