Unite for COCOA

COCOA House is a free after-school, academic enrichment program offered to students from the Hamilton Hill neighborhood of Schenectady, NY. In addition to offering one-on-one tutoring, learning games and activities, and nutritious food to all attendees, college student volunteers gain the opportunity to work with the community, gaining important leadership and organizational skills as well as high levels of compassion and empathy. This experience greatly impacts both the COCOA House students and the Union College students by improving achievement at both ends and allowing these two different groups of people to establish meaningful connections with one another. The result is a change in the lives of two generations as they strive to develop and succeed.

Your donation directly benefits the COCOA House and Union College students and makes a difference in their lives!
