THE STORY:

Help us raise the most in the #RiseToThrive Charity Challenge from September 10 - October 22, 2013.  Every donation counts! With your support we can prepare more low-income students across Chicago for success in college and beyond. Your donations will help change thousands of lives this year in our partnerships this year with 10 Chicago public high schools and young-serving organizations.

For more than 15 years, Umoja has partnered with students, teachers, administrators and schools to increase graduation rates, reduce violence, and equip students for postsecondary success. Umoja’s model is designed to meet the social-emotional needs of students, create a safe and restorative climate and intentionally connect students’ investment in their education to their future aspirations and opportunities.  Umoja’s programming emphasizes three core areas of student development— college & career readiness, social & emotional learning, and restorative justice.

What will your donation do? 

$10 pay for meals for one student on an overnight college trip

$25 pays for printing one curriculum binder for a grade-level seminar

$50 pays for food for a scholarship workshop for high school seniors

$100 buys materials for one Umoja University workshop for teachers

$250 buys materials for one new Peace Room at a partner school

$500 pays for one teacher's full participation in our week-long Umoja University

$1,000 pays for 10 students to attend an overnight college trip
