School Empower recognizes that we as students, whether child, teen or adult are very lucky to have the ability to dance, sing, learn a new language or whatever fuels our passion. We are lucky to not only have the mental and physical capability but the economic ability to be able to afford to take these classes. In recognition for those who are infinitely less fortunate than either we or our clients are, we have made it our mission to donate a portion of our profits to THE COVENANT HOUSE: a US based charity dedicated to housing, feeding and educating homeless teens.
1) WHY IS SCHOOL EMPOWER DONATING TO CHARITY? We are fortunate to have successful careers, roofs over our head and food in our bodies. We feel it is time to give back.
2) HOW MUCH WILL YOU DONATE? The percentage of our profits will be decided at the end of the year. The more we earn the more we will be able to donate.
3) WHERE WILL YOU POST YOUR DONATIONS? We will post our donation receipt from Covenant House on our blog at the end of the year.
Homeless kids have rights. They have the right to a home,the right to food, the right to guidance and an education … the right to be free from sexual, emotional, or physical abuse, the right to be free from exploitation and– most important – to be loved.
Covenant House operates on five basic principles:
Homeless kids come to Covenant House in crisis. Immediately and without question, CH meets their basic human needs.
Covenant House protects children from the perils of the street and offers that important sense of security.
Lying, cheating, and stealing are common survival tools on the street. Covenant House teaches by example that caring relationships are based on trust, respect, and honesty.
STRUCTURE: Homeless kids never know how they will get their next meal or where they will sleep. Covenant House provides the stability and structure necessary to build a positive future.
CHOICE: Covenant House fosters confidence, encouraging young people to believe in themselves and make smart choices for their lives.
