The biggest way our professional mentors prepare youth for school success is by spending time with them month after month, year after year. There is another tangible way to help them succeed in school and that is to provide the necessary supplies they need. At a time when dollars are scarce for many of our families, having the proper tools for school gives a child confidence and allows them to participate fully in their school experience.

We partner with three Title I elementary schools in AISD and want to give as much support as possible to those teachers who work with our Friends on a daily basis to help our youth succeed. They are provided so little to equip their classrooms and any support we give them directly benefits our youth. Show the love to these K-3rd grade teachers this year and help us shower them with much needed supplies! Click the link below to be taken directly to our Teacher Supplies Amazon shopping list.
