In collaboration with GPS Academy Great Neck, Long Island Scholars has co-founded
two teen-led extracurricular projects to help students bolster their career readiness and leadership skills:
Project Beacon, a peer mentoring program; and
ScienceHolic, a digital STEM magazine by and for teens.
Co-founding, leading, and building these programs with us, students gain skills, experience, and volunteer hours.
Long Island Scholars is also a certifying organization
for the President's Volunteer Service Award,
which recognizes the contributions of our student volunteers.
Finally, we run an approved TED-Ed Student Talks program, guiding students
in developing, delivering, rehearsing, and recording TED Talks on topics of their own choosing.
Contact us to find out how you can get involved in these initiatives as a volunteer participant or student leader!
