As we enter the holiday season, we find ourselves reflecting on the things that matter.
For all of us at East Side House, providing quality programs to hundreds of families is our ultimate goal. We accomplish this goal every year through various high-quality programs that produce remarkable results in the heart of one of America’s poorest Congressional districts.
Of our many programs, our Student Ambassadors program is one we deeply value. We believe that education is the core to creating economic opportunities for individuals and communities. We strive to build on the strengths of the young people we serve, breaking the cycle of poverty, and enabling them to achieve independence and self-sufficiency. Our Student Ambassadors program gives students the chance to travel to another country.
By giving students the opportunity to explore the world outside their own community, they can develop vital leadership skills within a cross-cultural setting and make lasting memories for life. Students plan and prepare for this trip with our staff by keeping a journal and answering questions that pertain to their personal journey and growth. “It’s all part of a larger effort to enrich the academic experience for students who show great determination in their education,” says Natalie Lozada, Associate Executive Director of Programs.
Your investment makes a direct and measurable difference in the lives of our Student Ambassadors by providing hope, help and results. Your responsiveness, generosity, and efforts make the work of our organization possible. On behalf of all of us at East Side House, we thank you for caring.
