The Brookline Literacy Partnership is a student-led nonprofit group at Brookline High School working to promote literacy in areas without equal access to books. We hope to prevent a lack of literacy from acting as a roadblock to self-improvement.
We are currently partnered with the Mather Elementary School in Dorchester, where we work to build up their library, improve their classroom literacy materials, and tutor children, and High Street Veterans Brookline Public Housing, where we improved their reading room and tutor children. Previously, we have partnered with Timilty School and Emerson School to create book rooms for student use.
Presidents: Maddie Kirrane and Dhruva Schlondorff
Tutor Leaders: Philip Bardon & Gigi Ames
BLP Teacher Advisor: Bridget Knightly, BHS Librarian
The 2020-2021 Tutoring Season Paused for Coronavirus.
Thank you all for your support this year, the students and tutors appreciate all your work! Stay safe and healthy. We hope to resume the tutoring program next fall as state and school guidelines permit.
The BLP meets on Wednesdays via Zoom from 2:30-3:30 . If you want to join us, please email Ms. Knightly (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the Zoom link.
