Forum 35 announces partnership with Children’s Charter School for its 2018-2019 Public Education Project (PEP) which supports education initiatives in the Baton Rouge area.
The purpose of PEP is to partner with one school each year to support opportunities that enhance the school environment, as well as provide resources and opportunities for students.
“We believe this will be a great partnership,” said Andrea Jerabek, vice president of service for Forum 35. “The staff at Children’s Charter presented several great opportunities that can help enrich the education the students receive, and we have a group of volunteers that are ready and willing to jump in.”
This partnership includes a large-scale summer renovation and cleanup project at the partner school, access to young professional volunteers, a small-scale spring renovation and cleanup project, and one Learning on Location grant each semester.
The project will kick off with the first school beautification project on Saturday, August 4th from 8 am to noon.
Renovation activities for the day may include but are not limited to:
  • Garden work
  • Painting games/activities/murals on the pavement and playground
  • Painting picnic tables
  • Touch-up painting inside school
In order to be as effective as possible, Forum 35 seeks volunteers. Interested parties can registerhereand RSVP on Facebook.
