Name: Shayna Loebig
Job Title: Science teacher
School/Organization: Cesar Chavez High School (Women Empowerment Club and Achieve 2015)
Project Title: Â Community Service Learning
How This Project Makes A Difference:
Each month, a business leader from the Houston area speaks at the â€śAchieve Assemblyâ€ť to give our students different perspectives on education and career opportunities after high school. At the end of the school year, students participate in a day of volunteer work. We are hoping to expand our assemblies to include this community service on a regular basis, but we need transportation and food funds to be able to allow the 90 students in our Academy to attend.
Each Tuesday, the Women Empowerment Club meets to discuss issues related to womenâ€™s rights, womenâ€™s leadership, and work we can do as women to help others.Â In the past, we have raised our own money for transportation and food during field trips but this year any money we raise as a group is being donated to help fund a school in the village of Ikumbo, Kenya.Â Regular service learning field trips would require transportation and food funding for the 20 members of Women Empowerment.
Â What We Need: Funds for transportation and food on service learning and community field trips and school assemblies.
