This month, our charity partners provide extra hours of learning, after school apprenticeships, and make sure kids are rehabilitated in the juvenile system. Make your charity selection and your donation will directly benefit these kids.

Citizen Schools provide expanded learning experiences for middle schoolers. Their day is longer and their education flows outside of the classroom. Through apprenticeships taught by everyday citizens, students learn how their textbook learning can be applied in real world careers.
Spark’s one-on-one workplace apprenticeships empower 7th and 8th graders to succeed in their education and beyond. Students are matched with mentor working in careers that align to their interests. This program serves to increase their confidence and gain key skills.
