Mission Statement

ALIVE interrupts predicted outcomes for children facing instability such as foster care, homelessness, domestic violence, parental incarceration, and undocumented status. Through targeted, proactive education, children learn to leverage their Power Within for themselves and for their community.

Description

ALIVE works with the community to deliver our uniquely powerful social-emotional and academic educational program designed specifically for Kinder-6th grade students experiencing instability. We know that children are not defined by their circumstances and with targeted support they can develop the skills and motivation that build lifelong learners. Through strategically designed content and instruction, ALIVE proactively interrupts predicted outcomes for children who have been uprooted. Our elementary students learn early on how to embrace who they are; living out their Power from Within for themselves, their community, and their future.
