My Students

My students are first generation college bound students who are high achieving and committed to making a difference in their life. Regardless of the challenges they face in their daily lives, they work hard in order to achieve their goals!

"I don't have a laptop at home and I have to go to work after school, so it is hard to finish my research project on time since I can't work on it at home" is something I hear a lot.

My students will absolutely need laptops in college in order to do their homework and achieve graduation.

My Project

On our seniors college decision day we hope to enter all seniors going to a 4 year college in a raffle so 2 of them can win a Chromebook. We are very proud of our students who are going to college and we hope that they are able to succeed in their new environment.

The chrome books will enable them to do their homework throughout their college career.

They will be an essential tool to them so that they can achieve graduation. The donations from this project will help improve the academic college careers of 2 lucky seniors who are low income and not able to purchase a laptop.
