As school has moved to a totally online platform, UPLINK (Uniting Peer Learning, Integrating New Knowledge) has also had to modify it’s program to virtual as well. We continue to offer tutoring and homework help daily and even more now with students struggling through the new virtual learning. We have increased our staffing to offer more personalized help and encouragement. In a new venture, we are offering enrichment activities that provide creative learning with fun and avenues for students to engage socially as they “hang out” together. We are taking advantage of the fact that we can bring in guest speakers across the miles virtually to encourage our students in character building and life skills that will further set them up for success. UPLINK is federally funded and free of charge to any AMS student. We opened our program on August 31, 2020 and we are still taking online applications.
