Learning Centers/Yvonne Cohen Book Fund
ISEF’s Learning Centers Project provides about 200 youngsters from underprivileged neighborhoods with one-on-one tutoring and support by ISEF’ s student mentors. ISEF’s undergraduate scholars assist the children with completing homework and preparing for tests.
Thanks to the Yvonne Cohen Book Fund, established in 1992 by ISEF board member Yvonne Cohen, pupils also take part in book clubs that promote a love of reading, and have the opportunity to utilize computer resources that are often not available in their homes.
The ISEF scholars who staff these centers form close personal ties with the children, inspiring them to work hard in school and aim at graduating with a diploma that qualifies them for college admission.
