O'The Places You'll Go College Tour

"Part OfThe Solution" is requesting donations to sponsor a minimum of five students on a ten-school college tour during their spring break. These students will travel with students from surrounding areas via motor coach from Philadelphia to North Carolina and back touring campuses and creating bonds along the way. They will chronicle their experiences and upon return, share as motivation to peers. Many of our students have minimal experience beyond the eight to twelve block radius of their neighborhood, and will benefit greatly from exposure to the countryside and open road. This trip has the potential to open their eyes to the limitless potential that is just beyond the boundaries of their cities’ limits.

The cost per student is approximately 350.00 our goal is set to cover the students’ financial obligation and the fees associated with soliciting donations. P.O.T.S. will not receive any of the funds donated. All donations will be applied to the students' experience.

“Part Of The Solution” (P.O.T.S) is a change agent focused on motivating average students to greatness through exposure, opportunities, and mentorship. During our years working in classrooms throughout Philadelphia we observed challenging students, as well as exceptional students receive attention and services. Most of the school population however, was somewhere between the challenging and exceptional and received the attention that was left after the other two demographics were sufficiently serviced. These students were expected to maintain the status quo. The lack of attention though often prompted these students to seek attention. Unfortunately this attention has often been sought by mimicking the behaviors of the challenging student. Many attention seekers have been mislabeled and mistreated. P.O.T.S. believes that through exposure, opportunities and mentorship we can decrease attention-seeking behaviors and increase self-confidence prompting the average student to achieve beyond levels they deem capable.
