THE STORY:

I am a High School Teacher in the Bronx that has been privileged to teach a group of talented students full of ideas, potential and just the right amount of sass.  I believe it is my responsibility to expose them to new opportunities and push them to constantly self reflect and grow as thinkers and everyday leaders.  My Students at Pelham Lab High School in the Bronx are growing as creative problem solvers who assume responsibility of themselves and their community. We would like to send a group of four of them to NC State's Youth Shelton Leadership Challenge Camp this summer at UNC Charlotte to develop and apply skills that will make them effective values based decision makers in their lives, our school and the world. The program is a week long camp that provides a comfortable space for high achieving High School students to be challenged and pushed to become better versions of themselves. I attended this challenge as a student and it changed my life and opened doors in a way that I hope it will do for my students.  Throughout the week, they learn about their strengths and weaknesses, develop and apply new leadership skills, reflect on the leadership cornerstones of honesty, integrity, diversity, social responsibility and compassion.  They also complete service-learning expectations, plan events, make friends from around the world, and get a sample of what living on a college campus could be like. The money raised in this campaign will go directly towards each student's $600 tuition and cost of a round trip plane ticket. Most students qualify for free or reduced lunch and, although they have the intelligence and grades to attend this life building camp, many do not have the resources. A scholarship like this may not only teach them how to be effective followers and leaders, but can impact or spark ideas and networking opportunities for their future and careers.

Your donation will help empower students to take ownership and walk in confidence!  Thank you in advance for making this a reality.
