Each year Beyond Walls invests $5,000 in every child in the program. Recent reports find that only 40% of Minnesota’s children are at grade level when entering kindergarten, and that the achievement gap only widens from that point. Currently, only four states in the U.S. have a larger achievement gap than Minnesota. Your donation will help to provide academic support to students in the Twin Cities as they begin their quest towards higher education. A majority of these children will be first-generation college students, and begin their preparation towards this goal once they enter Beyond Walls in 6th grade.
We are grateful for your contribution, and thank you for your generous gift. You are helping to change the Twin Cities, one child at a time.
