I AM BECAUSE WE ARE
We are because El Hajj Malik el Shabazz (aka Malcolm X) was a pioneer, a trailblazer and a role model. We will walk through doors that he kicked open for us and reach new heights while kicking doors down for those who follow.
Join the Shabazz House as we raise money for our school the Eagle Academy of Newark to help cultivate more opportunities for us to be exposed to extended learning opportunities.
In 2014, we've already been exposed to ringing the closing bell at NASDAQ with our partner Mentoring USA and spending the weekend at United States Military Academy at West Point. We've also started and expanded our squash, chess, and wrestling, basketball and baseball teams in which our scholars of flourished. In addition, we are developing Eagle TV which gives our scholars exposure to careers in media and our Comic Book Academy with 12Comics had a great launch. Our first student created comic books will be published this spring. The Eagle Academy | Newark is helping us to expand our minds beyond our neighborhoods while encouraging us to be a part of the change in our communities that we seek. But we need your help…everything that WE are is linked to everything that YOU are.
Here’s how you can help:
- DONATE - This is truly a grassroots effort, so no amount is too small or too large. We'd be just as happy if 100,000 people gave $1 as we would if one person gave $100K.
- JOIN OUR TEAM - Our school is split into 4 houses named after some great people in our history. (Muhammad Ali, El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, Roberto Clemente, Nelson Mandela) We are competing against the other houses to see who can raise the most money. Join us so we can show our fellow scholars that the Shabazz House runs this school :-)
- SPREAD THE WORD - Even if you can't join our team, spread the word. Direct people to our fundraising page or Facebook page. We need more people to know about the great things the Scholars of Eagle Academy are doing.
If you've taken the time to at least visit our page, we thank you for your time. Now, we hope you'll take one more step and join us in becoming the change we seek in our community.
WE ARE…… EAGLES!!!!!
