Are you ready to change a young person’s life forever?
We need your support for a unique project that is literally transforming our schools!
My Future Is Now (MFIN)/KAPOW
brings volunteers into schools to teach kids about work, and how to be a success – like you! They also bring students to the workplace, to experience peoples’ jobs first-hand, expose them to jobs with your company, and connect your company to the community! This web site
gives more program details.
To participate, you are assigned to one teacher/class (schools are located throughout Broward County), visiting seven times during the school year for one hour to teach fun and easy lessons. Before you begin the lessons, a one-time training will show you how the lessons work, ensure they will be successful, and that you will have a great time teaching the students!
I can personally attest to the power of bringing volunteers into schools to reinforce and validate our teachers, having volunteered myself with this organization and helped them initiate partnerships with several schools in Lauderhill, not to mention Dillard High School 6-12. I have also spoken to the MFIN students at Dillard High School, listened to their questions and provided guidance and support for their dreams. We know they can all succeed, – in school, and in life, as long as they believe in themselves.
The required training will be scheduled later in August or early September.
