See Forever operates the Maya Angelou Public Charter School in the heart of the District of Columbia. In an area with too much crime an too little work, on a sagging block in an aging neighborhood, and old and abandoned men's lodge is now a school. It is a place where 100 students are getting what might be their last shot at success. It is a place where 7 out 0f 10 kids who were lost to society are now applying to college and where the other 3 are learning the skills needed to become productive members of the workforce.
The School combines rigorous academics, employment training, counseling and mental health services. At See Forever, the toughest challenges - the school drop outs, the teenage mothers, the kids in trouble with the law - are recruited and given the education and tools needed to meet the demands of college, of the workplace and of responsible adulthood.
Funding made possible through the CharityWorks partnership helped See Forever open a second campus and gave another 100 teens a chance for a bright tomorrow.
“See Forever has the potential to revolutionize the way our country addresses the unique needs of children.”
