Students Will Receive a Scholarship and Access to Over 100,000 Live Courses
DALLAS, Jan. 28— Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas (BGCD) has partnered with Outschool to offer students a $300 scholarship to use towards their more than 100,000 online courses through May 2021.
Outschool offers online classes for your children ages 3-18. They feature over 100,000 online classes from thousands of independent teachers and organizations across a range of topics, from core academic subjects like math and world history to enrichment activities including forensic science, baking, astronomy, meditation and more. These offerings are complementary to what children are learning at school.
Research conducted by McKinsey & Company shows that in mathematics, students are likely to lose five to nine months of learning by the end of this school year, whereas students of color could be six to 12 months behind.
“We believe these free courses will supplement what kids are doing in the classroom and where they may be missing out when it comes to extra-curricular activities,” said Charles English, BGCD President and CEO.
Outschool classes meet in small groups over live video chat where students who share the same interests connect with teachers. It has been proven that students in smaller classes perform better because there is more individual participation, attention, and communication.
Outschool offers live online education experiences that connect real-life teachers with learners in small-group settings to explore everything from Minecraft, Pokemon and Cooking to Chemistry, Algebra, and Literature. With over 50,000 online classes offered by teachers to learners around the globe, Outschool helps supplement what is often missing from more traditional education. Outschool’s mission is to inspire kids to love learning by making education fun, social and self-directed. Classes on Outschool range from one-time enrichment lessons to semester-long core courses. Classes are offered across all subjects, and our learners range from age 3 to 18. More information can be found at outschool.com.
