We believe in the value of Collective Impact. Our experience alone is worth very little. It is only when we partner with others, learn from them, and share this experience that it becomes valuable. One of the ways we are doing this is through our partnerships with key community leaders and investors in 32805.
The MVP Families program was developed alongside families in 32805 in an effort to engage the parents of students at Title 1 schools and help close the disproportionate achievement gap that exists in education. Families like Richandra and her son James (pictured left), who have been participating in the program since Fall 2016.
The cost for one MVP Family to participate in all aspects of the program – including tutoring, family coaching, monthly and bi-monthly meetings, childcare support, and quarterly Family Fun events – for one year is $2,500. Your support helps families achieve their own goals and the overall goals of the MVP Families program: increased family stability, academic success, high quality developmental relationships and improved health and wellness.
