My students are incredible! I work with teens that have barriers in their lives; these barriers can range from lacking work experience or getting poor grades, to the extreme barriers that cripple the lives of grown adults. Many of these students have not been outside of our community. Many of my students have bounced from home to home, leaving some of their most precious memories behind. I want to be able to show them the many different skills and choices they have available to them by opening their eyes to new things through better life skills and employment opportunities.

Benton Harbor High School

Location Pin Benton Harbor, MI

What will the funds be used for

I am currently working on setting up task boxes to provide hands on opportunities for students to work on Employment skills. Each box will cost approx. $10. Please consider sponsoring a box.

The money donated will help provide my students with a more up to date and relevant life-skills course. Skills learned in class will help them become more employable.
