“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ―Winston Churchill
We are a nonprofit organization 501(c)3 that partners with public high schools in low-income and high-risk communities, to teach students life-needed skills to face real challenges in our competitive world.
Education is fundamental for all. Unfortunately, the students who are most vulnerable during this pandemic, are low-income students as they face several difficulties, such as, having to focus on providing for their families' needs rather than studying and educating their hearts and minds.
We are focusing our efforts to help in two ways:
1) Hosting our life-needed skill courses online for these students (FREE COURSES). Each class teaches a skills e.g. Facing and overcoming adversity. All classes are taught by the founder and all classes include guest speakers, who are successful entrepreneurs and C-Level executives who interact with students and offer a unique experince to them. All guest speakers talk about their biggest mistakes and challenges while growing-up, how they faced and overcame such obstacles. These courses are meant to inspire students and offer real life experiences and solutions. We host classes in English and in Spanish.
2) Provide students with food needs during this pandemic. If they need food, our organization will provide it.
Skills that we teach: Leadership, basic negotiation skills, entrepreneurship, overcoming challenges with a positive mindset, how to prepare for a job interview, how to manage a credit card, among many other courses.
We will use your donation for the following: Provide students with food or other essential needs, to keep adapting our courses to online classes, reach out to schools and students, online platform expenses, expand our guest speaker network, among other operational expenses to keep expanding our free classes to more students.
You can directly help underprivileged students and make a difference in their life by contributing to a program built to enhance their education and skills, which will be fundamental, especially during and after this crisis.
