BENEFITING: SMART

George Yang

THE STORY:

Who I tutor:
Caleb is a 6th grader who enjoys playing the flute and swimming. His favorite subject is history and he will consistently remind me to be prepared for World War III and that San Francisco is long overdue for an earthquake. He also sends me awesome e-mails like this:

"Hey, George, today I went on a trip to People's Grocery in west Oakland. I went planting in just rocks and fish poop nothing else, feeding chickens, harvesting zucchinis, and shoveling mulch. It was really fun. See you next week.
Your student,
Caleb "




SMART is a unique because they offer low-income San Francisco students an intensive program that
begins in fifth grade, and supports each student through to high school graduation. SMART works with
public schools and community-based organizations to recruit students who will thrive with the
comprehensive support SMART provides, and SMART’s private school partnerships mean that Sam, and
every student in the program, receives a world-class education. SMART’s academic summer and after-
school programming, college access curriculum and support, family education series, and of course,
volunteer tutor and mentor program further ensure that students are supported through high school
graduation equipped with the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in college and beyond.

Nationwide, only 25% of low-income students enroll directly in a four-year college directly out of high
school, and by age 24, only 8% of those students have earned a college degree. Together we can stop
this trend and give low-income students the opportunity to thrive. SMART is a nonprofit organization
that relies on funding from foundations and individuals like me and you! If you can help out by giving
any amount, it will make the difference in the life of a deserving student and their family. Join my
campaign to raise $1,000 by clicking the button below! SMART will thank you, I will thank you, and most
of all, a life will be changed!
