I believe we all have a project of which we are proud. That project for me is Camp Achieve.
Camp Achieve is a program of Achievement Services, Inc. Achievement Services (AS) partners with schools to design and implement out-of-school-time learning for children who are underachieving in reading and math. AS is a nonprofit organization and receives all of its funding via contributions, grants and contracts. Funding is a constant need to do the work we do and to serve the deserving children we serve.
Camp Achieve provides kids in Baltimore City an opportunity to view education as fun and school as a great place to learn. It provides kids an opportunity to experience places outside of their communities that show them that education is crucial to life success. It provides kids a safe place to exercise their imaginations and interact with teachers who want to help them learn. It provides parents a place where they can feel comfortable engaging in their child's learning. Camp Achieve is all of this and more to the children we serve. It's a life-changing phenomena.
Camp Achieve is doing great work with some great kids. The program needs more supporters, more funding to continue its work. Please check out http://www.achievementservices.org/ and consider supporting our programs.
