Trail Blazers

Members of the Trail Blazers decided to analyze the connection between poverty and poor performance in the classroom by third and fifth graders. Through their research, they presented striking evidence that there is a direct relationship between the two. They also showed that the opportunity for impact to be made on this disparity closes rapidly between the third and fifth grade.

World Changers Dream Team

The World Changers Dream Team partnered with approximately 50 students participating in the 21st Century after-school program at Pendleton Elementary School on a month-long project that explored both personal and social responsibility. The team facilitated opportunities for the 3rd through 6th grade students to learn about personal responsibility through a financial literacy curriculum and practice social responsibility by completing service projects together in small project teams.
