Our determined teachers and students are always trying to go the extra mile! Teachers work to make more opportunities available, and students work to go on enrichment trips, take additional classes, and explore career fields. Take a look at the current campaigns from Envisioners, shown below, and please support them by giving and by sharing this page on social media. A little help goes a long way and your support will empower Envision students to achieve their dreams!
New Year’s Resolution: Read! Read! Read!
Ms. Torres wants to give her students the gift of reading! “My students are curious, imaginative and resilient. Every day they come ready to learn and ready to challenge and question the world around them. As a school, we pride ourselves on inspiring students to embrace their individuality and are always exploring new ways for students to express themselves. In English class, students are eager to read as many books as they can get their hands on; especially when they are able to find books that tell stories similar to their own. Help me give them more of these books to read! Your support will help expand our classroom library and provide a more diverse selection of books. Since we do not have a traditional library in our school, the classroom libraries are what students mainly rely on to select their reading books. I aim to create a library that is exciting to all level of readers.”
SEND KATHY TO MEDICAL CAMP!
Hi my name is Kathy, I always had the dream to become a doctor. The college I would like to go to is UC Davis for their very good medical program and the National Youth Leadership Forum is a big opportunity for me and my medical future.
SEND EMMA TO MEDICAL CAMP!
Hi my name is Emily and I want to become a nurse practitioner. The reason I want to become a nurse practitioner is because I have a brother who is currently 3 months old in the hospital and having to be there for him has been what has made me discover my passion for the hospital life. I don’t know what college I necessarily want to attend but I’m hoping to figure that out through participating in the National Youth Leadership Forum medical program.
SEND LAILA TO MEDICAL CAMP!
My name is Laila Hogan. For a very long time I’ve known I want to be a veterinarian. I’ve volunteered at the San Francisco Zoo for the past 4-5 years. My dream school is either UC Davis or Cornell. I would love to do the National Youth Leadership Forum medical program because it focuses on the field I want to eventually go into and it will be an amazing learning experience.
PREPARING FOR A DIGITAL WORLD
Julia Benton, Impact Academy’s talented Digital Media Arts teacher, is raising money to expand opportunities for her students! She is hoping to purchase a set of digital drawing tablets for students to experience how digital artists actually work.
On these tablets, students will learn valuable design techniques they can employ in college and career. Work like this facilitates the development of college-going habits and skills that will empower our students to succeed in college and become first in their family to graduate. Thank you for your support!
Chrome Books for Special Education
Learning Specialist Jessi Stein at Envision Academy in Oakland wants to give her special education students more educational access! “My students need really need access to chrome books in the Learning Center. Our students currently have access to chrome books in their classrooms. Having a charging station increases availability for use and security of computers.”
Help Our Hayward Students Build Robots!
Teacher Extraordinaire Denise Huey at Impact Academy in Hayward is raising money for eight Arduino Starter Kits, to help students expand their engineering horizons by building robots! “Our Computer Science students want to take the next step in making their learning meaningful. Right now, they’re learning how to code, but haven’t been able to put that knowledge into practice yet. Students need the resources to expand their learning to real world projects that they can design, build and experiment with. With these programming kits, students’ imagination will run wild; they will start programming projects as simple as lighting up LEDs to a timer, to programming robots to do specific tasks! With your help, my students will combine their creativity and their learning to design meaningful projects to benefit their community.”
