While back to school is an exciting time for most young people, for others – like many of the children and families at Youth Villages – it is a reminder that they lack adequate financial support to afford the school supplies necessary for a successful education. With a little extra help from our Backpack Heroes, the children Youth Villages serves will begin school ready to learn and with the supplies they need to succeed.
Every child deserves a chance to be whatever they want to be when they grow up, but they can’t do that without a great education. They’re counting on heroes like you for that opportunity. A new backpack full of school supplies truly can have a profound impact on a child’s learning experience. You can be a Backpack Hero by donating backpacks and school supplies or making a financial contribution to support a child in your community.
