For most families, back to school time brings excitement and anticipation. But for others, it brings a reminder that they can’t afford the school supplies needed for a successful start to the new school year. You can help change that.

Become a Backpack Hero to ensure the children in Youth Villages programs will be ready to learn, with the supplies they need. A new backpack full of school supplies will put them on the path to a great education. Donate backpacks, school supplies or financial support for a child in your community.

Make a difference in these children’s lives.
