We will be starting the Leadership Club in January, but will need start-up costs to get the supplies for the kids, and to go on college visits. These teens have dreams of becoming lawyers, teachers, Physical therapists, and social workers. They will have the opportunity to visit schools in Mississippi where they will learn about their desired profession and major.
There are many obstacles for these kids, because of generational and persistent poverty that many of them live in. But they are so caring, giving, and intelligent. By enhancing what they already learning in school and church, you can help make a huge impact in their lives by giving them the opportunity to learn. These teens are the future of Shaw and Mississippi, and we need to invest in them now!
