Bring Hygiene to a Juvenile Jail

Help me give my students deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, and lotion to maintain self-respect in jail.

My Students

My students are incarcerated in a juvenile jail 24 hours a day where they live in tiny cells. Many of my students come from poverty and have experienced trauma or community violence of some kind. Students have struggled with education and often come to the institution having dropped out of school. Up to fifty percent of our population is classified as special education and require services for disabilities.

Despite their often challenging circumstances, my students are resilient, brilliant youth who are working hard to transform their lives.

I am lucky enough to be their English teacher and want to give them opportunities to master tools that will help them to empower and rehabilitate themselves.

My Project

Many students complain that the deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste and lotion at the juvenile jail, where they are housed, is ineffective and of terrible quality. They have requested that I write this grant for products that might help them to not feel self-conscious after they play sports or when they are in class.

My students, who are predominantly youth of color, need hygiene products that will give them a sense of self-respect while they are incarcerated.

Thank you so much for your consideration. While small items such as these make the students feel increased self-respect in an environment where they have a tendency to be depressed and anxious. Please help me help my students.
