My Students

The students in my school come from some of the highest crime rate neighborhoods in the city of Chicago. Many students travel long distances and on multiple buses through dangerous neighborhoods to finally get to school, the place they call home. Students come to my school to find peace, comfort, and safety. Many of the students are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These students face numerous obstacles daily to receive a quality education.

My Project

As we continue to develop the sports program within RCA we are asking for support from DonorsChoose sponsors. We would like to continue to support our students with the things they need and are asking for your help as we do this.

We are asking for helmets, gloves, bats, socks, bags, and other items as we continue to build for a successful season.

These young ladies come from some of the most troubled blocks and use sports as an outlet to get away from the negativity. We are asking for your support as we continue to help our students participate in positive activities.
