My Students

Please help young students develop their personal and political identity! By contributing to our project you will be helping an urban school educate students to become active members in their community!

My high school students are beginning to develop their personal and political identities through coursework in government and history.

We are an urban school district with a high poverty rate. Many of our students lack access to educational resources most people take for granted--- newspapers, Internet, and television.

My Project

Many of our students do not have access to educational resources such as the newspaper, Internet, and television. Therefore I would like to make these resources available within the classroom setting. With your aid, I will be able to provide my students with education magazines and newspapers to help them create their own personal and political values.

With your donation, our urban school district will be able to provide students with educational resources such as newspapers and magazines.

My goal is to expose the students to as many reliable news sources as possible.
