As a staff member at Woodcraft Rangers, I have seen firsthand how important it is for children and youth to have enrichment opportunities outside of school. Because of my privilege, I had access to summer enrichment programs as a kid, which were so formative to my life. I want kids in my city to have those experiences too, regardless of their race, or the neighborhood they live in.
During the summertime, it is all too easy for vulnerable children to become “invisible.” Families in low-income communities have been hit hardest by the pandemic, as many are essential workers and find themselves without school or out-of-school programs to care for their children.
We need your support to serve vulnerable youth this summer.
Will you consider a donation to support these programs so that kids know they are not alone?
· Youth Engagement: Maintaining positive relationships with peers and mentors is critical for young people. In this program, students can participate in Woodcraft activity clubs like dance or sports via pre-recorded videos anytime, along with live digital gatherings led by trusted Woodcraft staff.
· Family Camp-on-Delivery (COD): This 3-day weekend family camp is facilitated virtually by Woodcraft staff and supported by a box of camp supplies delivered to the family’s doorstep. Low-income families pay just $20 per weekend, which is waived for those with the greatest need.
· BIRCH: This text-based caregiver support platform provides positive messages, enrichment activities, and helpful information three times per week to more than 5,000 families for free.
We simply cannot “cancel summer” for these vulnerable youth, who need us more than ever. Please join me to provide a #SummerOfSupport to keep kids engaged in positive, mentor-led activities this summer.
Thank you for your support!
