Having an impact is all about partnership and participation. We currently serve over 2,000 students at 18 programs located in California, Texas and Louisiana.
Achieving success on each of these campuses requires collaboration. We work with other not-for-profit organizations, such as local chapters of Boys and Girls Clubs and Communities in Schools, to help administer the program. We work with these organizations to oversee budgets, ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws, provide insurance coverage, and employ the teachers. Together we hire individuals with experience and a high degree of enthusiasm. This is a critical process. As Matthew says, we must find the “talent” to run a successful program. We have also joined forces with other not-for-profits who have helped select and fund our programs and who have maintained involvement with their selected schools. Our partners include the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation, the Brees Dream Foundation, and THINKTogether.
