My Students

Our students come from the heart of the city. They strive for the best international education along with the opportunity to be part of something bigger than themselves.

Our kids live in underserved neighborhoods with the highest rates of poverty and crime in Boston.

This does not deter them from their goal of a high school diploma and a college education, it fuels them. Their circumstances give them a resiliency that only exists in those that live in their environment.

My Project

My basketball players need these champion hooded sweatshirts to help keep their bodies warm after practices while their bodies are cooling down from their work-out.

Being an athlete means having not only the ability to learn and play the sport but also having the right gear and equipment to play the sport.

Hooded sweatshirts will allow my students to keep their body temperatures regulated as they are cooling down from their workouts and heading back outside into the cool air. After sweating from an indoor workout, going back outdoors without the right gear on can make us more susceptible to getting sick. This is why we need the warmth of the hooded sweatshirts.
