When you make a gift to the Tandem Friends Fund, you are directly providing our students the resources that they need to pursue their dreams, whether it is through the science lab, on the stage or on the field. The small size of Tandem Friends School allows students to try a broad range of pursuits and to feel the fulfillment of being trusted and appreciated for their growth and commitment in any area they choose. We provide a safe space, where kids can do something they have never done before, where challenges are a part of growth and respect for the process of learning is the essence of success. You can help to ensure that many more students have access to this type of environment by committing your support with a financial gift today.
Quaker Youth Leadership Conference:
Our student leaders from Friends Council made a splash in Baltimore and at Sandy Spring Friends School as Tandem representatives at the Quaker Youth Leadership Conference. Here on campus, they have done amazing work setting the tone for valuing community and making the most of each day on campus together.
Teen Mental Health First Aid:
In August, our entire faculty and staff were trained in teen mental health first aid. Then, during the winter, our 10th-12th graders received the same training. At Tandem, the well-being of our students is essential, and your support helps us to make programming like this possible.
