My 20 for 20 Challenge

Together, one child at a time, we are building bridges to a better future

Since 2001, Children Rising has partnered with East Bay schools serving communities most impacted by poverty, violence, racial injustice, and educational inequity. We do that by coming alongside thousands of struggling children and youth, and empowering them to rise to their God-given potential.

Last year, 400 children received the gift of foundational learning, improved self-confidence, and the sense of hope that always follows. However, due to the impact of COVID-19, the achievement gap in the communities we serve has grown larger. There are so many more loving and intelligent children who deserve the same chance to learn and have a much better opportunity to realize their potential as they grow.

Children Rising has developed online, one-on-one tutoring capabilities to connect eager students with a caring tutor. The solution is simple, though not easy. Anyone can be a mentor in a young life, and a positive force for change, regardless of age, professional demands, or location.

Please join me as we build bridges of hope for thousands of children, now and for years ahead!

My goal is to raise $250, which will equip 10 caring adults to serve as reading or math tutors. All it takes is ten $25.00 donations, or five $50.00 donations. Will you support me today?
