Empowerment - New York Spring 2018

In 2016 Nationwide, 21 percent of student’s ages 12–14 reported being bullied at school during the school year. Of students ages 12–14, 13 percent reported that they were made fun of, called names, or insulted; 12 percent reported being the subject of rumors; 5 percent reported that they were pushed, shoved, tripped, or spit on; and 5 percent reported being excluded from activities on purpose. Additionally, 4 percent of students reported being threatened with harm, 3 percent reported that others tried to make them do things they did not want to do, and 2 percent reported that their property was destroyed by others on purpose. These statics will not be for our Empowerment Wednesday Students. Because of those shocking statics the Empowerment Wednesday Program has decided to lower the percentage. One of the ways to lower it is by setting goals and one of our goals for Spring Break 2018 is that seven of our Empowerment Wednesday Students (The Magnificent 7) future Doctors, Lawyers, Surgeons, Judges and Presidents will take the Dream trip of their life to New York. Our plans for these students is that they will visit Time Square, to visit “Good Morning America” or “The Today's Show” studios, visit the Statute of Liberty and to make it to their April 3rd 2018 4pm appointment with Pastor Alex Burgos at the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. This trip is a trip that will cause them to Dream and Dream Big. With your donation you will help get them one step closer to our reality.
