50 students from Young Elementary get to come [to the Ali Center] and they get opportunities that the wouldn't have. It's sort of a second shift of freshness and ideas that students get to benefit from.
Dr. Donna Hargens Superintendent, Jefferson County (KY) Public Schools
Many of these children are told far too often, in a hundred subtle and unsubtle ways, that they’re not important, that they’re not talented, and that they can’t make a difference. They will now be spending every afternoon learning the opposite — that each of us has the ability, and the responsibility, to make our corner of the world a little better for our having been here.
Justin Walker Executive Director of the Global Game Changers
The educational program is not only fun and interactive for the students, but it also changes the way that the students interact with each other and with our school community. The program itself is extremely organized and teacher friendly. It’s amazing how one program can guide so much positive change in a classroom and in individual students.
