Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) Atlanta, GA

The Give Back School for the 2019 Annual Meeting was the Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy. 

Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA) was founded July 2010. Representing the class of 2017, the legacy class is progressing on target with their sights set on college. CSKYWLA has a singular goal – to ensure each young woman graduates from college ready to make a positive impact on the global community. The school’s founding principal, Melody Morgan, set a solid foundation to advance the vision. The torch has been passed to the current principal, Eulonda Washington, during the summer of 2016. Since this time, the faculty has reaffirmed the vision and developed additional academic expectations, support mechanisms, rituals and traditions that cater to the complex academic and psychological needs of young women. Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy graduates will enroll in and earn a post-secondary degree from a college or university. Our mission is to develop globally competitive leaders by providing a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum.

Apache Elementary School in Albuquerque, NM

In 1967, Apache Elementary School opened its doors to welcome students from the far northeast heights in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Grandparents and parents frequently share their experiences as Apache students when they walk through the hallways.  Apache ES has a long history of educating the children in the neighborhood.  The school is a Title I school with all students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Despite the challenges, this neighborhood school is committed to providing high academic expectations and experiences for all students and their families.

Apache Elementary School will create a STEAM lab, a play-based learning environment where students explore, design, create, test, and redesign in a multidisciplinary and multi-modality approach. Programming robots, coding, designing and building structures, testing marble roller coasters (simulation of a Rube Goldberg setup that students design), and experimentation with electricity (Snap Circuits), are some of the hands-on activities that will engage and excite students.

The Apache Elementary School STEAM lab is now in full swing!

Native American Community Academy in Albuquerque, NM

 The Native American Community Academy (NACA) is a tuition-free public charter school in Albuquerque, New Mexico serving grades K-3 and 6-12. NACA was founded in 2006 to reimagine Indigenous education. NACA provides an academically rigorous education that is culturally relevant, community-driven, and strengths-based. NACA's mission is to engage students, educators, families, and the community in developing strong leaders who are academically prepared, secure in their identities, and healthy.

 NACA seeks funding to support the critical tutoring program which provides a needed resource for students who do not complete their work or otherwise fall behind in their classes. The mission of NACA's tutoring program is to create an environment that is safe, supports learning, promotes personal growth, and builds relationships. Held during Out of School Time (OST), students and adults are engaged in effective communication and positive interaction that fosters critical thinkers and leaders. The program draws on NACA's Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Community/Service, Culture, Perseverance, and Reflection to form the foundation for OST, providing a bridge between OST experiences and in-school learning.
