Why "Invest"?
Why "Invest"? We use the term "invest" to symbolize your investment in a student's future through a better education.
Category: General
Class Size: 90
Grade: 9th - 12th 

With these funds I will purchase flexible or alternative seating for our Jobs for America's Graduates-Kansas Classroom.  The five goals of the JAG-K program are career development, civic awareness, leadership development, social awareness and community service. We accomplish these goals through classroom activities, experiential and educational field trips, guest speakers and in and out of school community service projects. JAG-K is a non-traditional class but is currently meeting in a traditional classroom. We would like to have alternative seating options for students to be more comfortable and therefore more focused while in the room. We would like to have bag chairs, bungee chairs, cushions, rugs, clipboards, lap desks, lamps and other lighting options to create a peaceful environment. These students sit in hard, non-ergonomic desks all day and could really benefit from a soft, comfortable seat for at least 50 minutes of the day.


If we do not meet our goal...

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase as many alternative seating and lighting items as I can with however much we raise.
