Impact Beyond the Classroom

Help our kids GO BEYOND their challenges to reach their dreams. 

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Help us empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers.

At home, at school and in between, kids need you!
