A Global Day of Giving to Support Local Initiatives
Pledges to Support After-School Extended School Day Program at Excelsior Prep Charter School
Tampa, FL Tuesday, November 28, 2017 ReDefiners World Languages, Inc. (RDWL) joins #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. www.ReDefinersWL.org/Give Occurring this year on November 28, #givingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for more people to learn about the language and cultural enrichment programs that ReDefiners offers in Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish to children in the Tampa area. The mission of making this program more accessible to families from disadvantaged communities is as strong as the support it receives. ReDefiners has partnered with the Office of Community Engagement and Partnership at University of South Florida and the Prodigy Moves Cultural Arts program of the University Area Community Development Center (UACDC) to provide enrichment programs at Excelsior Prep Charter School, an elementary charter school located inside of University Mall, to offer Spanish classes as part of the school day curriculum, offering 1-hour of Spanish every day and ReDefiners has designed an Extended School Day program to include enrichment opportunities that would not otherwise be possible, including Arabic and Mandarin classes, Piano, Drama and Basic Computer Programming. ReDefiners aims to offer this program to more children in the Tampa community. ReDefiners goal is to raise $19,000 to support programs at this school for the Spring of 2018.
“We have been incredibly grateful for the continued support of the Tampa area community through the gift of volunteerism and advocacy for our programs in our first two years of operation. As we embark on year three, we know the impact we will continue making in the lives of children is even greater than we can imagine. This impact is made possible through the support of our community partners and individuals who believe in providing equity in educational opportunities,” said Chantelle Daniels, founder and Executive Director of ReDefiners World Languages.
