the project

We believe in our youth being educated and motivated for their academic success in order for us to have a better society and to stop the decay. 

So, our program forms as a wrap around service from the community to motivate our youth.

We investing in the AES program which celebrates academic achievements and gives students the proper recognition that they deserve from the community.  

Donations this year support doing this program again next school year. 

the steps

One week after the end of each report card period, we hold the Academic Excellence Summit events. 

In the 2017-18 school year, our events are:
November 18th
February 3rd
May 19th
June 23rd

why we're doing it

The mission of this program is to motivate youth and reward students for getting good grades. This initiative is to help engage students and bring the overall academics achievement of each student, ie test scores, student involvement, and behavior.  Due to the statewide issue of failing test scores and attendance these said academic problems are crippling our children and school system. Through these AES events, we will show that we can turn this problem around by simply reaching out to the students and rewarding their diligence.  Also, at each event, we will specialize in speaking to students about why getting better grades is important
