My Students

My students are in a Title I School in the South Bronx. These students come from a low-income community with limited resources available to help them achieve social, emotional, and academic goals. 100% of these students receive free lunch. They speak many different languages and come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. My students are eager to learn about diverse cultures and share knowledge with others. They possess leadership qualities and skills needed for success. My students are passionate about learning and sharing knowledge with others. Despite so many hardships, my students are incredible children with boundless potential.

Many students benefit from taking part in after-school activities such as playing basketball.

They fight every day to learn and better themselves. I have highly motivated and hard-working students that are determined to leave their mark on the world.

My Project

Coming from some of the toughest neighborhoods in NYC, my students do not often have the extra money when it comes to purchasing athletic clothes and shoes to practice in. I would love to be able to give my team work out gear such as shirts, sneakers and sweatpants to wear to practice and on game days. Having athletic gear will create team unity and spark a love for basketball!

Being in a title 1 school, resources are limited, please help me give my team new gear to wear during our upcoming basketball season.

I know that this would excite and motivate our basketball team tremendously. Thank you so much!
