This Summer, We’re Calling On All #ChampionsForChildren
By Eric Steckel | July 28, 2018
This Summer has absolutely blown by! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the progress our young readers and math scholars made last year. Now, with the help of our ‘elves,’ we are preparing for another great school year, which begins in just a few short weeks.
Throughout the summer, we have been diligently planning an all-new #ChampionsForChildren Challenge. It’s different than our normal campaigns. We are encouraging all of our champions to help us make a generational difference in our community. And it’s easier than you might think!
Right now in Oakland, there are thousands of young children standing precariously at the crossroad of promise and risk. But imagine this: With child-centered tutoring at critical periods in their young lives, struggling students will feel they matter, catch up to grade-level academically, develop hope that they will reach their unique potential in life, and break the cycle of poverty, prison or early death.
Talk about making a generational difference in our community! And all it takes is a caring adult coming alongside a struggling student at the crossroad of promise and risk.
We’re excited to unveil our exciting new #ChampionsForChildren Challenge, but aren’t quite ready yet. Stay tuned.
We hope that you will join us in making a making a generational difference in our community, one student at a time!
