We believe every child has the right to play. As a foundation, we believe that physical activity is critical to a child’s development and is directly correlated to how they perform in the classroom. Our mission is to provide opportunities to underserved youth while giving back to its communities.
We have created programs that generate change in the youth who are our leaders of tomorrow. It is our mission to provide them with positive options and to speak to them in REAL TIME, to show by example, when thrown into a difficult situation, how to overcome and make the best decision for their future.
The goal of Jumping Beans Chicago is to help provide students in grades K-12, in low-income Chicago Public Schools, with the supplies necessary to promote learning.
According to a recent article in US Today, classroom teachers can spend as much as $500 of their own money to support classroom needs. Our goal is to secure as much funding as we can in order to relieve teachers from the burden of spending their own money on school supplies.
Now, who’s ready to help the incredible teachers and students of Chicago?
