Every child should have someone to help them unlock their potential.

Sadly, many children face a tidal wave of obstacles and are disconnected from those with the power to help. Poverty, hunger, illiteracy and fragmented families isolate children, cutting them off from their vibrant futures.

In Arizona right now: 
• 1 in 4 children in AZ struggle with hunger in AZ
• Only 44% of 3rd graders are proficient in reading (Expect More AZ)
• Only 53% of students graduate high school

In the face of this challenge, what can we do? It’s time to stand together.

Join School Connect to team up with local heroes who are making a difference at their local school!
