Boyle Heights Community Enrichment

A group of amazing educators have committed to go above and beyond their job duties and are looking to make change within their schools and community.  With the help of volunteers, Aide, Cristina and Claudia are creating a Day of Leadership and Inspiration for a group of adolescent girls from Second Street Elementary. 

Second Street Elementary School is located in the heart of Boyle and has served the community since 1895. It is school-wide Title 1 community school highly-impact by poverty and lack of economic resources.  The school is ranked at a 94.37% poverty index with 100% students on free meals.  5% of the student population is homeless.  Data from city-data.com indicates that less than 47% of the Boyle Heights population has earned a high school diploma in the last 15 years.

We are asking for your help to fund this amazing day for our girls and thus change the lives of a group of girls from Second Street ES.

 Your donation to fund this event is a wonderful opportunity to give back to underprivileged girls and help them become inspired.  The spirit of the event is to help the girls realize the value of hard work, perseverance, and the importance of higher education.  Having the girls attend will be a life changing event, as they discover valuable life skills and build confidence to overcome any personal or societal challenges in their journey to a higher education and professional career.

Please consider sponsoring one of the wonderful girls for $40 or any amount you desire.  Your donations will cover the costs of transportation to the facility in San Dimas, a nice hot breakfast and lunch, a school bag, supplies and facilitator for one of our workshops.

We thank you in advance for your support in giving back to the community and helping make a difference in the lives of our future leaders.
