BENEFITING: Student Advocacy Center of Michigan Inc.
Be a part of our Graduation Dream Team for teens in foster care and invest in their education. Your donation will pay for a credit recovery program that allow students to make up credits lost due to frequent foster care placement changes and other difficulties in school.
Every $50 pays for one Florida Virtual class for students like "John," a 17-year-old who initially wanted nothing to do with Student Advocacy Center when first referred. He was too focused on dropping out, convinced that making up two years of math was too difficult. What was the point?
Knowing that only half of students in foster care graduate, Student Advocacy Center staff do what they do best. They showed John how much they care, how much they believe in his potential. He agreed to take a credit recovery math course at SAC. Staff picked him up from school, gave him dinner and provided a personal tutor. John thrived and in four months, he earned the credits he needed to graduate. He is now in college!
Help more students in foster care get back on track to graduate. Donations will help us purchase classes and fund a teacher to work one-on-one with students.
