This tutoring program is a wonderful opportunity to engage with students from a local community and provide academic support to them in the core subjects (English, math, and history). Transportation is provided to all participants, with a van leaving from Akwe:kon at 2:00 pm on Mondays and traveling to Lafayette High School, Onondaga Nation. Tutoring sessions usually last from 3-5 pm and the van will bring back participants to Cornell between 6 and 7pm. If you have any questions or would like to get involved please contact Margit Chamberlain (
