Imagine That! provides educational enrichment and in-kind resources to K-5 scholars.
Imagine That! School Adoption
Imagine That! is eager to adopt one school annually. During the 2011-2012 school year Imagine That! adopted Brookfield Elementary School and we had a wonderful time serving the Brookfield students. In the 2012-2013 year our board decided to adopt the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area Community School.
Imagine That! school adoptions consist of Imagine That! making donations to scholars and hosting events throughout the school year in the following order:
Calender of Events:
September: In support of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign and the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area’s Youth Movement Imagine That! will give a quick speech on the two programs and give away reusable water bottles to scholars. Scholars will be encouraged to drink water throughout the day as well as being instructed to only use their water bottles for WATER.
October: Imagine That! donates halloween costumes, pumpkins and dental supply kits to children.
November: Imagine That! sponsors families who may be unable to purchase Thanksgiving dinner.
African American Male Achievement Cascade Literacy Summer Program
African American Males grades K-2 identified as “at risk” were mentored and taught by 9-10th grade AAM (Alternatives In Action summer participants) whom were also identified as “at risk” in literacy. This cascade affect assisted high school students in relearning missed basic literacy skills while additionally giving them a leadership experience.
