The support and funding provided by Thunderbirds Charities for Saving Amy‘s Kids Go program are invaluable in ensuring the success of these children in school. The program’s year-round tutor/mentor model is designed to provide personalized attention and guidance to each child. By working closely with the children three days a week, assisting with homework, teaching time management skills, and building relationships, the tutors/mentors play a vital role in helping them succeed academically and emotionally.
Providing school uniforms/clothing, supplies, tablets, and covering medical/dental fees during the school year is essential in removing barriers to education and ensuring that Saving Amy’s children start the school year on a solid note. By covering the fees for sports, clubs, instruments, and other activities, Saving Amy enables these children to explore their interests and develop their talents. The summer reading program and the engaging activities, such as ice skating, movies, science museum visits, and picnics, contribute to their personal growth and development.
Saving Amy supports 76 children, and 100% of the children who have received tutoring and mentoring have a ‘C’ grade average or better, with the majority maintaining an ‘A’ or ‘B’ average. The impressive academic outcomes speak to the effectiveness of the Kids Go program. The funds from Thunderbirds Charities for Saving Amy’s Kids Go program are providing Saving Amy‘s children with hope, opportunity, and a brighter future.
