Supporting students in Grand Rapids

News

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) — West Michigan is creatively coming up with new ways to further enrich the education for our youngsters. The Grand Rapids Student Advancement Fund is considered to be one of those programs that does such for our community.

In an effort to make classroom learning more hands on and relevant for students in Grand Rapids Rapids, the Student Advancement Fund has recently partnered with Grand Rapids Public Schools and the Grand Rapids Public Museum to promote the new IMMERSE program.

This program provides a learning experience in which teachers can extend their curriculum outside of the classroom and into the museum. For a full week, students have the ability to see their subjects in history, science, music and more come to life with the exhibits the museum has to offer.

It is the vision of the Student Advancement fund to see Grand Rapids students grow and thrive in a strong learning environment. With the partner support of the Amway, the organization has the ability to provide educational engagement through programs like IMMERSE.
