The COVID-19 has had a major impact on 3Point's programs. The organization had to postpone our annual signature fundraiser that was scheduled for May 7, 2020.
3Point ran after-school project-based learning programs at 6 Boston Public middle schools. When the stay at home shut down was announced, 3Point collaborated with the administrations from the 6 schools that we operated programs and shifted to virtual programming utilizing Zoom and BAND. We also made a decision to retain our staff and re-designed our curriculum to accommodate the environment in which our youth would learn, involved parents and other stakeholders. Projects involved research utilizing the internet in which students are asked questions about subjects that requires utilizing the internet and reporting back. We also included a physical challenge in which the youth compete against each other and the coaches. The physical challenge is designed to introduce and encourage physical fitness.
Please join us on Giving Tuesday to help us continue supporting our students and our dedicated staff.
