Sponsor-A-Mind®

An Effective Practice

Description

The Sponsor-A-Mind® program was developed in order to supply underprivileged school children and classrooms with basic classroom materials. The program accepts donations of pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, backpacks, computers, and various other school supplies and classroom materials. The program maintains a close relationship with family outreach coordinators and teachers of students in less affluent schools, in order to identify and help the children, families and classrooms in need. The program emphasizes the idea that donating supplies is not only a matter of helping those in need, but is supporting education and allowing for students’ development and future success.

Goal / Mission

The mission of the Sponsor-A-Mind® program is to supply underprivileged school children and classrooms in less affluent neighborhoods with the basic materials needed to exist and thrive in education.

Results / Accomplishments

In the past two years, the Sponsor-A-Mind® program has distributed over $65,000 worth of school supplies in Boston and across the U.S. and abroad. Supplies have been donated to over twenty schools and hundreds of teachers, students, and families.
