BENEFITING: YOUTH LIFT INC
There are 2000 homeless kids in the Pinellas County school system and 4000 homeless kids in Hillsborough County. They need help with school success. Right now, Youth LIFT has 25 homeless students enrolled in the program and 20 of those kids have tutors. The picture added to this fundraiser is of some of the homeless kids currently being tutored by Youth LIFT volunteers. Youth LIFT would like to have tutors for 35 more kids by the end of the year reaching a total of 60 kids and having tutors for each of these kids. To reach this goal, a Youth LIFT team member must interview 35 more children and their families. To get tutors for each of these kids, 40 more volunteers must be interviewed and trained by the end of the year. Additionally, all 40 volunteers must pass a background check and references must be called for each volunteer. It costs $90 to complete all of this work to get a volunteer tutor for a child in need for at least one year. A donation goal of $2700 will give 30 more homeless kids in the Tampa Bay area a tutor for at least one year and a chance to do better in school so they can become successful adults. Please help to reach the goal of raising $2700 for these kids.
