Hope Launches ‘Bored of Boredom’ To Address Educational Inequality

Hope Shinderman (‘17) is currently attending Columbia University as a freshman! During the pandemic she started a not-for-profit organization called, Bored of Boredom, to address learning loss during the times of Covid-19 and educational inequality in general. Bored of Boredom is a student-run organization committed to providing free educational enrichment for all. They offer group classes and individual tutoring. She believes that their mission is truly predicated upon the values that were instilled in her during her time at WNS. Hope was recently awarded the National Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Award (Tikkun Olam means repairing the world in Hebrew) for her work on Bored of Boredom. Please take a look at their website, boredofboredom.org to learn more.
