Adopt a Team
We partner with Buchtel High School football team to provide and serve a pre-game meal before each game as well as a community speaker to encourage the team. Our goal is to create relationships with the players through intentionality.
We work directly with our partnered teachers and our Classroom Tutors to provide 1:1 hands-on, targeted support to students to help them increase their reading levels and skills. Tutors build lasting relationships while helping them get on or above grade level in reading.
Adopt a Classroom
Adopt a Classroom is our Holiday outreach that brings together the Akron community to inspire hope in our partnered schools. At our Adopt a Classroom locations, every student in the school receives a new and wrapped present that our volunteers personally deliver.
On the 23rd of every month, we honor Chad Cooke through the ChadEffect. Chad lived with the passion to serve and focused on being intentional. We use the ChadEffect in our partnered schools to encourage the students to build character.
