Giving Tuesday and the Education Exchange Corps

Happy Giving Tuesday!

We would be honored to be one of your recipient nonprofits today. 

There's a lot of work to be done to make our home a fairer place for everyone. Here's what we're doing about it:
  • Planning our next Summer Leadership Academy to give kids a free and super awesome academic enrichment program, and to employ local high school students to run it;
  • Working with partners to expand our Global Leadership Simulation game to the academic year;
  • Boosting tech and entrepreneurship education through Hack4Hope;
  • Providing mentorship to high school students;
  • Developing a legal clinic in North St. Louis City to serve as a one-stop shop for families looking for more ways to give their kids access to real opportunity.
You can help support all of that by donating here: 

When you do, tweet @EduXchangeCorps or post on Facebook and we'll be sure to give you a shout-out!

But what would a Giving Tuesday be if we didn't give something to you? Just for reading this email, here's a cute picture of a future president of the United States working out an international treaty with our special guests from the Missouri House of Representatives:

Enjoy this Giving Tuesday!

Sincerely Yours,
