How Can I Help?
Becoming a Sponsor
There are many ways support the students of Highbridge Voices - volunteering as an academic tutor, hosting concerts, facilitating student activities, and of course, donating.
We welcome volunteers with experience tutoring in various math, science, and English subjects to work with our students one-on-one and in small groups. Tutoring sessions take place at our facility at regularly scheduled times. Bringing a fresh perspective to the academic work of a Highbridge Voices member can be fun and rewarding and is the perfect way for volunteers to make an immediate impact on Highbridge Voices students. By spending time with one of our students, volunteers have the opportunity not only to help students with their school work, but also to explain how this information relates to other problems or topics that the children are working on in school. Come spend an afternoon with a student and feel the rewards of academic mentoring.
Highbridge Voices regularly performs at events facilitated by friends of the organization. This offers companies an opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to Highbridge Voices, while also benefiting from a performance at a special event or company party. As the holiday season approaches, Highbridge Voices is busily preparing for their upcoming holiday events, many of which are at corporations in the New York area. With the ability to offer both secular and sacred holiday selections and a host of other numbers, Highbridge Voices can be the perfect choice to offer something special to your company this winter.
Do you have an extra pair of tickets to a show or event in New York City? Would you like to host an afternoon softball game and barbeque? Maybe a career day at your company? Activities such as these are great ways to provide experiences for small groups of students from Highbridge Voices. In the past year alone, Highbridge Voices students have had a terrific time watching the Yankees play at the Stadium, visiting corporations in midtown, hiking in New York State parks, and enjoying at a pool party in Westchester. Give the give of an experience that can change a child’s life today.
In 2009, over 79% of all donations made to Highbridge Voices directly supported program services; directly supported our students. Here are some examples of what you support can provide:
Summer SAT classes for 11 High School Juniors and Seniors - $7,850
A Semester of Math instruction for 4th and 5th graders - $4,500
Voice lessons for three students for one year - $1,750
