Education Champion

ProAct is all about enhancing the educational experience for our Program Participants.  We want our youth to have a broad, holistic educational experience and we depend on our friends in education to help us inform our Program Participants as to why education needs to remain a valued asset in their lives.

Here is what we expect from each of our Partners:

Impact on Community Members

Before meeting ProAct After a ProAct project
  • Think of economically disadvantaged youth as people who may make an uplifting but fleeting impact on the neighborhood.
  • Have little respect for the skills or commitment level of youth.
  • Appreciate the help but are ignorant about how much planning goes into a well-run service project.
  • Respect the youth as people who commit to doing the job well and thoroughly, who return to make sure the service project will have a lasting impact, and who design and run the project with a concern for the needs and history of the neighborhood.
  • Respect the skills the youth apply in terms of project planning, general labor, and communications.
  • Understand that ProAct’s work takes weeks of planning, fundraising, training, and community research.
  • Apply existing skills to a project.
  • Learn skills in planning logistics, tracking and motivating volunteers, and ensuring high-quality results to meet ProAct’s expectations.
  • Care about seeing the community improve.
  • Take the initiative in pursing ways to improve the community.
  • Treat volunteers with respect and gratitude.
  • Care about sharing advice and perspective with volunteers who are new to the neighborhood.

We depend on our friends in education to help us inform our youth and their parents as to why it would be in their best interests to stay involved with service-learning work that will provide a holistic educational experience.

They agree to provide us with a pipeline of information and resources to share with our Program Participants, host our host our service-learning programs and work with us to help promote our organization to the surrounding communities in order to celebrate students’ milestones to increase their probability of success in life and education.
