Hope Shinderman

Pacific Palisades, CA | 17

2021 AWARD RECIPIENT

Hope founded Bored of Boredom to provide online academic and extracurricular support for students suffering learning losses during the pandemic. Many participants are neurodiverse, from under-resourced communities, or ESL students. Bored of Boredom has mobilized over 900 volunteers to serve 2,000 students in preschool through 12th grade around the world with virtual group classes on traditional and unique topics, an ESL program, social justice courses, and individual tutoring. They have community partnerships in the United States as well as in China and Central America, and have raised money to support increased technology access to help close the digital divide.
