DATA Supplies Drive is Back Now through April 20

The first round of the supplies drive brought in many much needed items, but there is still a need for more donations. Please help us update and replenish school supplies, including first aid supplies. Funds for these items usually come from very limited school site funds or out-of-pocket for our teachers. Thanks for your support! You can email with any questions.

You can check out the needs, purchase and ship directly to the school HERE on our AMAZON WISHLIST. If you prefer to buy elsewhere and drop off at the school that works too. Please click the "Buying this gift elsewhere?" link and update the quantities.

And, if you would rather make a donation towards needed supplies

Rising Entrepreneur Program

The Rising Entrepreneur Program is an online, self-directed entrepreneurship course that guides teams of one to four students through the process of transforming their ideas into successful businesses over the course of a few weeks. Teams that finish their business plan by April 13 can apply to present their business idea at the 7th Annual New Venture Challenge on May 5 for the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes. It's a great resume builder for college and career and we strongly recommend that you encourage students with entrepreneurial potential to participate in this program

For more details, students can check out @aspire_3 on Instagram and watch this video.
