Alain Locke Students win Future Founders Challenge!

Caleb Guider, Kimmya Doughty and Isis Turner won a brand new Samsung Tablet at today’s Future Founders Challenge. Our students were mixed with elementary and high school students from across the city to compete in teamwork challenges. The students worked with real-world entrepreneurs to make innovative products, develop a strategic business plan and to create an award-winning marketing campaign. Even though only a few of our students took home the big prize, everyone was a winner!! All of the participants received a Future Founders t-shirt and lunch from Potbelly’s for their hard work.

#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back. This year, Alain Locke is participating in #GivingTuesday to rally contributions for our book drive. Our goal is to add an additional 200 books per classroom, for all 15 of our classrooms. That’s a lot of books, but it’s possible with your help. Follow the link below and help share the gift of reading with our students—and make #GivingTuesday a success at Alain Locke.
