About Us

The Emily Shane Foundation is dedicated to promoting the ideals of Emily Rose Shane, who was kind to all, compassionate, empathic and eager to help anyone.

 

The Emily Shane Foundation's SEA (Successful Educational Achievement) Program provides one on one mentoring twice a week to struggling middle school students, focusing on those with learning/processing issues. The Program targets those who could not otherwise afford this type of support and risk "falling through the cracks". Middle school is a key time in a child's life, where poor academic performance can lead to low self esteem and be the cause of drug use, skipping class, getting in with the wrong crowd, etc. We hope to act as a safety net, providing individualized help in all areas to enhance performance. This includes not only help with homework, test preparation and assignments, but effectively teaching organizational skills. The mentors provide the student with tools and strategies to best overcome their particular challenges. They are like personal coaches and cheerleaders; someone the student can rely on to be there for them to help them achieve their best academic potential. The only "cost" to the student is to participate in our Foundation's "PASS IT FORWARD" campaign. For every mentoring session, the student must perform any good deed or act of kindness and enter it on our website. We want to encourage a mindset of "giving back" and compassion for others. It is our youth that are the future; we hope our program will set them on the right path for future success both academically and as meaningful members of society.
