Fight Poverty by Staying in School
If you stay in school, your job will be cool, and you won't end up in the poverty pool.
Our Goal Statement
Locally: Put "Stay in School" flyers around the community. If a student is struggling in school, we can encourage the student to get a tutor.
Nationally: Send a letter to the President asking him to share our video with all middle and high schoolers.
