Golden Apple is a Chicago-based non-profit organization dedicated to resolving the Illinois teacher shortage by recruiting, preparing, placing, mentoring, and retaining high-quality educators throughout Illinois. Having worked within the Chicago Public Schools District this year at my job with City Year, I have seen firsthand how much of an impact dedicated teachers that really care about making a difference within the Chicago school system have on the success of our students. Currently in Illinois, only 54% of teachers stay in teaching for more than 5 years. I am dedicated to help Golden Apple in their mission to change that number.
Help me reach my goal of raising $1750 for team Golden Apple by the day of the marathon, October 11, 2020! Donations are tax deductible.
