Join the Stand for Children family!
My name is Luci Maldonado, and I am a member of Stand for Children at Alhambra Elementary. Like you, I have big dreams— not just for my kids—but for every single child at my school. In my heart, I felt like I could do more to help students who are not doing well academically. The only problem was that I didn’t know where to start.
With Stand for Children Arizona’s help and leadership training, we had the courage to meet with the principal and tell him about our bold plan to launch a tutoring program in our high school. We worked hard at creating a budget and deciding on the best time for the tutoring sessions.
Within a couple of months, we had hundreds of students volunteering and receiving tutoring. This is an example of what can happen when parents have the tools to embrace the power within us. As parents, we can lift Arizona’s children when we work together. But we need your help to keep training and empowering more parents. I am grateful to Stand Arizona for supporting the community and for believing in the power of parents.
