Hi! I’m Jonas. I am raising money to support the young men and their champions at Nativity Prep, the same Jesuit-led middle school that helped me become the man I am today.
The staff of experienced teachers and dedicated volunteers goes above and beyond – they help the students and their families succeed. --- Imagine your middle school teacher teaching your mother a foreign language at the end of the day or the principal of your school showing up at your doorstep the day before Christmas and handing you a gift certificate to Stop & Shop as a Christmas gift – these are just a few of the countless, selfless deeds I have witnessed before graduating from Nativity in 2003.
The program which starts at 7:30AM and ends at 8:00PM each day is far beyond academic and promotes the growth of the whole person. The student is taught not only to believe in his own self-worth, but also to understand his responsibility to serve others. The school teaches the boys at a young age to become men for others.
Nativity is an accredited, Jesuit middle school dedicated to providing a quality, tuition-free education to boys of all faiths from low-income families residing in Boston’s inner city neighborhoods.
The money you donate will go to provide resources such as books and uniforms for the students and to support the staff at Nativity Prep, which I know will be greatly appreciated.
