Read all about how we get ready for going back to school in September! You can support our journey as schools start to re-open with hesitancy. Our kids need to stay connected with each other, their mentor-coach, and their community. You can sustain that reliable community by supporting our free programming with Flatbread Pizza for dinner, a raffle and more. Here's to happy classroom and mat adventures ahead!
Our program students at Boston and Providence came together in great conversations, activities, and development skills.
Moral Bravery: putting students outside of their comfort zone.
Love of Learning: through non verbal communication and teamwork.
Perseverance: to work together through social emotional learning challenges.
Big shoutout to our mentors Kelsey, Mike, Owen, and Rebecca! They closed out the day with an inspiring quote that leads their organization and mission, "If not me, then who?"
