The Network of Educational Resources and Development (NERD) seeks to connect students with opportunities for tutoring, mentoring and educational advocacy to foster the growth of future leaders in education. Through trainings and programs NERD strengthens existing student initiatives in this area by providing personal, professional, and organizational development. NERD also serves as a connecting point between students interested in making a difference in the community and community agencies. NERD is a network for students and student groups involved in tutoring, mentoring, and educational advocacy efforts. To get involved, you can contact Americorps VISTA Anna Donze , attend one of the NERD events this semester, or reach out to one of the student initiatives in the network. A full listing of our partner community programs is listed under Partners. To serve as a partner site, please contact Anna Donze.
