Where Tau Volunteers Serve

Notre Dame Schools

Notre Dame Schools of Milwaukee are first class Catholic schools, primary and middle school, serving on the south side of Milwaukee in the heart of our Hispanic community. They provide a unique learning environment empowering at risk children to break through socio-economic obstacles. The schools are dedicated to advancing the educational, spiritual, and overall well-being of Latino children through small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and leadership.

Tau Volunteers have been instrumental in providing support to teachers, administration, and parents – working one on one with students, preparing class projects, and assisting with activities.
