With just a small donation you can help give a young person who is living at or below the poverty line, a unique dream-building experience!

I’m a public high school teacher. I teach science to kids who quite literally come to school hungry and go home to unsafe neighborhoods. I come to work everyday armed with a simple philosophy, to save as many kids as I can by giving them the best learning experience possible.

I recently began teaching a college-prep Marine Biology course here at Cabrillo High School in Long Beach, CA, but regrettably the one tool that I would love to use to enrich and inspire these students, is the most costly to attain: THE OCEAN...and it is right next to us!

Catalina Island offers a 3-day marine biology program full of science labs and field activities on island ecology, island formation, kelp forests, algae labs, astronomy lessons. For some this will be their first time kayaking, hiking, or snorkeling and can very well be a powerful catalyst for change, to expand horizons, to want to become something more, to pursue higher education. In my opinion it is guaranteed to give hope.

The cost per student is $250 and my goal is to raise enough money to take 15 of my brightest students.
