|The James R. Jordan Foundation is committed to serving students and families in our partner schools during these difficult times. Day to day, students live with limited resources both at school and at home. Now that school and home have become one, the challenges are magnified. One way JRJF is able to combat these challenges is to make certain that students have the tools they need to succeed. That is why our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign is dedicated to providing technology for 160 7th grade S.T.E.A.M. students. The families we serve are located in Chicago’s Westhaven, New City (formerly Englewood) and Rogers Park. Every $75 that is raised will go towards the purchase of a tablet for a student. This will be a resource for a student and their family for years to come.
Through our S.T.E.A.M. program we have seen that students are motivated to learn and become more confident in their abilities the longer they are exposed to S.T.E.A.M. education. JRJF is providing online and virtual resources to students in order to enhance their educational opportunities. Tablets will make it easier for students to not only access these resources but also assist in their daily schoolwork. A table will also be much needed extra help for families that have more than one student in their household.
