Help Adrina and her family to reach their goal and raise the funds for an experience that can never be forgotten

In this educational experience, 8th grade, Adrina Cholula will have the opportunity to visit the Eastern part of the U.S. She attends one of several G.A.T.E. schools in California and with the help of her family, works to raise profit for this prospect. Contradicting this, with only minor costs being met she also needs extra contributions to help out with her cause. Adrina comes from a small town called Stockton, where the economy has taken a downfall; it has taken all emphasis off of trips like these. In this city government assistance is high, welfare recipients increase daily, the crime rate is high and the police officers are few. Adrina has the passion to establish her hometown and it means alot to her to step out of her community. If you give her the chance to enhance her education she will see and go places that not many people in this town will ever lay eyes on. Students who attend this trip don’t just learn about America—they experience it. Imagine learning about John F. Kennedy at his eternal flame or reciting Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech where he gave it, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. This interactive tour features activities and will enable her to visit the places where major events shaped our nation.

Washington, Pennsylvania, New York and other nearby states are not the only things she will witness with your help, but in addition to that Adrina has the advantage of earning high school credits. This is possible because while interacting in these various locations, on-tour students must fulfill a photo assignment and several standards travel journal assignments. Upon returning, students are also required to write essays on the books they read, answer reflective questions associated with their tour experience and complete two thematic essays. In total, the credit program requires at least 100 hours of coursework, which equals the equivalent of one semester's work.

As Adrina values this beneficial trip she also treasures the help and support of locals, friends and family members. Not only will she dedicate her time to make an effort but Adrina plans to use what she will accommodate from this opportunity in her everyday life. As she continues to pursue her goal she hopes that you can assist her in achieving it as well. All donations will be greatly appreciated.

"I believe that great things can come out of the most small, insignificant places and I am one of those things, with your help I can prosper."
