RAPSA Community Sponsorship Program
What is the RAPSA Community Sponsorship Program
So that everyone interested may have the opportunity to learn valuable strategies to help keep students in school, we formed the RAPSA Community Sponsorship program. Since the program's inception, more than 88 education professionals have received complimentary registrations to the conference.
"We are a public high school within our own district so we lack funding to attend conferences such as these. If sponsored I’d like to take what I learn and apply it to my own advisory (class) as an advisor while also sharing the information and techniques with my colleagues in the hopes that our entire school community would ultimately improve and trickle down to our students and their work."
The RAPSA Community Sponsorship program enables generous foundations, corporations, and individuals like you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of at-promise students through the enhanced education of their teachers and community support system. The cost of just one latte a day will equip an educator with the skills to keep dozens of at-risk students in school and able to realize their full potential.
