Academic Tutoring—Roots of Music, a Tulane student club, organized 100 self-care goody bags for New Orleans kids who are part of Roots of Music. Roots of Music is a nonprofit program that provides music history and theory, instrumental instruction, and ensemble performance preparation for students ages 9–14 from low-income households. Vid Raturi, from Plainsboro, New Jersey, who earned her Bachelor of Science from the School of Science and Engineering in 2020 and a Master of Science in May, is president of the club that provides homework help, test preparation and mentoring to Roots of Music students. The club’s goal was to help the younger students “cope with the mental health implications of COVID and isolation — as well as bring them some joy.”
