“Danielle Dotter has been one of Hyde Square Task Force’s most engaged and involved volunteers this year and it is with great pleasure that we nominate her for the 2016-2017 Course-Community Collaboration Award. Danielle began volunteering with Hyde Square Task Force as an AP History tutor in the Fall and since then has been a great support to several of the youth in our programs. Our general expectation is that tutors meet with one student for two hours once a week, however Danielle began meeting with the youth who we paired her with, Edelind, multiple times throughout the week and during the weekend in addition to holding tutoring sessions over the phone when they could not meet in person. Danielle also took it upon herself to hold group tutoring sessions for several of our other youth who needed academic support as well. Not only did Danielle make her tutoring sessions engaging and productive, but she would also take time beforehand to prepare study materials for the youth that she was working with. We never asked or expected any of this from her, but we were continually impressed by the initiative that Danielle took in making sure that these students succeeded academically…Edelind as well as the staff at Hyde Square Task Force feel that Danielle has gone above and beyond the commitment that we ask for and has a clear understanding of our mission and we could not think of a person who is more deserving of this award.” – Rachel Kirk, Hyde Square Task Force
