Hola Friends and Family!
Please consider donating to this incredible cause. Every week at the After School Club I get the opportunity to laugh (while sometimes playing soccer!), do homework, and support refugee youth. All the money is going directly to these Pittsburgh based non-profits. Read more about them below!
Thank you so much for all your support :)
**I've had to raise my goal to $500 after meeting my first goal- help me raise even more money for these well deserving kiddos!! <3 **

Alliance for Refugee Youth Support and Education (ARYSE) is participating as a Contributing Charity for the Pittsburgh Marathon! Join our community of supporters who are using their platform to #GoTheExtraMile for immigrant and refugee youth in Allegheny County.
This year, the funds raised by our marathon runners will support two of our programs:
PRYSE Academy: Pittsburgh Refugee Youth Summer Enrichment Academy is a one-of-a-kind summer program designed to help immigrant and refugee youth become engaged, confident, and celebrated. Through literacy-rich academic curricula, creative expression workshops, team-building activities, field trips, soccer programming, and a public performance at the conclusion of the program, PRYSE is proven to help participants develop literacy skills, build personal confidence, prepare for the school year, and deepen their sense of belonging. Thanks to support from hundreds of individual donors and local foundations, the program is completely free of cost to participants.
After School Club: The After School Club is a safe and fun space for refugee and immigrant youth of all ages living in Pittsburgh to receive homework help, tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment. This program is a collaborative effort between ARYSE and JFCS Immigrant and Refugee Services - 2 organizations in the Pittsburgh region committed to the safety, support, and successful integration of immigrant and refugee communities.
