Imagine a recently immigrated child, with little or no formal education, placed in a classroom where they're not able to understand others and unable to express themselves. Imagine the anxiety, frustration, or isolation this child might feel.
You have the power to improve that child’s life.
The Friends of Simon program connects empathic, high-achieving SFU students with children and youth needing extra support with language and literacy skills. Friends of Simon program provides a foundation for children to grow and be successful both inside and outside the classroom.
