YOUR Impact

Did you know that volunteers LIKE YOU accounted for 65,000 hours of annual volunteer service? We measure progress in School Case Studies which show how outcomes for children can change over time, as the community pools their network of resources to target areas of greatest need. Join Love Our Schools Day at a local school, gather a team of volunteers to do teacher appreciation projects with Love Our Teachers, connect at a CAFE, or consider becoming a School Champion!

Live Out YOUR Purpose

For Valley Metro employee, Daryl Blazing, the experience was especially rewarding! “To be able to get outside the walls of this building and our normal mode of operations, and to be able to supply this equipment to these kids…It was really exciting to see the looks on the kids faces, the joy in the parents faces that their kids could now do their homework at home instead of scheduling time at the library to find an available PC…What I think of as every day and expected was so much excitement!”

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

MR. FRED ROGERS

Because YOU Make A Difference!

We believe that the heart of a champion belongs to those who not only have vision for a better world, but take action. It is those who take the time to build relationships, establish trust, and know that what they invest in students travels home with them, and in turn strengthens their families, and ultimately the communities around all of us.

The Heart of a Champion

This year our Founder’s Heart Award winner, Andrea Worth, shares about the ripple effect that one person can have.

“I just truly believe that it only takes one person and one very intentional heart that goes after a very specific need. Every moment can become a movement.”

Like Andrea, School Connect believes that every courageous leader with the heart of a champion – every one of you is helping to start a movement that creates a better future

Doing this alone is impossible; it takes all of us working together to make a difference.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
