THE STORY:

Our organization is raising funds to MAKE AN IMPACT in public schools during the 2013-2014 school year (and beyond).

It's no secret that today's K-12 public school classrooms are data-driven and focused on high-stakes testing curriculum. This demand replaces the creative, innovative, and engaging lessons that truly make the difference in student motivation.

This focus on high-stakes testing and the curriculum that supports it is primarily driven by FOR PROFIT entities who are also lobbyists and political players affecting educational policy.  Many of these companies are looking to cash in on the billion dollar market that is educational publishing.

Our organization, currently focused on 6-12 English/Language Arts classrooms, draws research and attention to these issues. We support teachers with personalized assistance; offer students innovative programs that school budgets do not support; and provide schools and districts with cost-effective solutions to curriculum and professional development.

Our programs focus on what is important in motivating students—relevancy.

STUDENT PROGRAMS

Scholastic Art & Writing Awards: This is the most prestigious award program of its kind in the US. Our organization is one of only 35 national writing affiliates, covering 42 districts in the state of Florida. This enables us to bring more student recognition, awards, publication and scholarship opportunities to local Florida students. We also provide writing workshops for both teachers and students to support the process in the classroom.

Voices in Verse Spoken Word poetry has immense power to engage even the most reluctant of learners. The purpose of this program is to introduce this genre to more students.  We create events, workshops, and school to school competitions.  By 2015 our goal is to have an annual Florida Youth Spoken Word Festival with a winning team being awarded a trip to the National Youth Competition—Brave New Voices.

NAS-Not A Statistic: The education, poverty, and criminal statistics of black males should be the nation’s most pressing educational issue. Instead, the focus has been on the Achievement Gap and the discrepancies in testing for minorities.

Our program works with black males ages 13-18 who are at-risk for dropping out. Select students attend a summer-school alternative which involves excursions to Florida landmarks and historical sites of civil rights history. We will read and write about the areas we visit, meet with motivational leaders, and study the disheartening statistics of these demographics. Through ongoing support and mentoring, these students will break the statistical stereotype.

Visit our site for more information about these and our teacher programs.

Please donate and/or share this fundraiser with others. If you donate over $100 we have a variety of ways to recognize and honor your generosity through our print and online media. Please see this page for more details.

This is our first year as an official 501c3 Nonprofit and our staff of five has made tremendous personal and professional sacrifices to support this organization and its beliefs. If you, too, want to MAKE AN IMPACT, join with us today.
