Michael Robinson’s Excel 2 Excellence Foundation!
As part of the Foundation, Michael is creating a pilot program at his alma mater Varina High School, located right here in Richmond.
The volunteers will be assigned to a specific team and serve as “Assistant Coaches” to the pros. Volunteers will have more hands on interaction with the kids and will be there to help motivate the kids and identify students that need additional assistance such as tutoring or other needs. We envision the volunteers as mentors but more of a group approach as opposed to one on one. Each morning session will have a speaker or workshop but we will have time set aside each morning for volunteers to check in with the students to make sure they are keeping up on assignments, attending tutoring, etc.
