Programs and Partners
Reviews from our Partners:
Med-ucate is educational and informative. What makes it more interesting is that the team breaks down difficult concepts like the immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems in a simple way that our Jeena kids can understand. The Med-ucate team is patient and makes learning fun. They’re enthusiastic, well organized. We love the slides they use. They take charge and keep the kids engaged every minute. They’re dedicated and Jeena is happy to have them conduct classes.
The Med-ucate team has been volunteering and teaching in FCSN After-School Program since 2019. We appreciate their passion in reaching out to the special needs community and as well as their dedication in teaching especially during this time of pandemic. Every week, the Med-ucate team teaches Anatomy Class through zoom online which brings lots of positivity to our students. The class is always creative and fun and talks about the importance of keeping the body healthy. Each member of the Med-ucate team is compassionate, patient and kind as they make sure to interact with every student and to encourage them to participate actively. The Med-ucate Team has also donated materials for our students which helps them enjoy learning and creating crafts. The students genuinely enjoyed learning from the Med-ucate team, and we wanted Med-ucate to continue teaching at the Afterschool Program.
