70% of public school children in Nicaragua will drop out of school before graduating 6th grade. This is largely due to the extreme poverty families endure in the rural areas. Enrich Missions helps impoverished students in rural Nicaragua reach their full potential. Many times, this means providing a hot meal and vitamin. As part of our program, Enrich Missions provides a well balanced, high quality meal to at risk students. Far from standard rice and beans, menus include fish tacos, hamburger sliders, vegetable chowder, and soy burritos. With ingredients locally sourced and fair traded, we're making an impact in our neighborhood in Nicaragua. To continue enriching the lives of students, Enrich Missions coordinates students from the local university to tutor young impoverished students in the barrio Sur Maria Romero. We also provide uniforms, school materials, medicine, and youth activities. Everything a student needs to excel, and break the cycle of poverty. #iEnrich www.enrichmissions.org

The Futures in Aerospace initiative connects students to industry, aviation executives, and college and career opportunities. Students obtain an understanding of their hard and soft skills, articulate those skills on their resumes, share the skills and passions through face-to-face interaction, and develop strong relationships with aviation leaders. There’s a great deal of skilled talent in areas impacted by nearby airports (large to small). The program identifies interested students and builds pathways to guide them toward continued education and/or direct workforce employment. The careers and mentoring program provides career readiness tools, best practices, and mentors, thus elevating their chances of pursuing their educational and career goals. The career development workshops are conducted in multiple locations. They feature presentations by aviation executives, who share their experience, descriptions of their company specialties, overviews of hiring practices, and career-focused advice. In addition to the presentations, students will receive career planning best practices, such as skills identification, resume writing, interviewing tips, and networking instruction. The goal is for students to be well prepared to meet aviation executives and recruiters at the large networking reception, with resumes in hand, creating strong first impressions, conducting meaningful dialogue, and taking strategic next steps. If all goes well for the students, they’ll leave with job shadowing, internship, and part and full-time employment commitments.

Did you know that reading aloud to children is the single best predictor of their future success in reading? Reading Legacies is a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to facilitate supportive relationships for children through family and friends reading aloud with them. We hope that, one day, all children will feel the security of caring adult relationships and develop a love for reading. In addition to setting them up for success, reading with children creates feelings of attachment and security, and reinforces the knowledge that they are valued. Our special focus on children with incarcerated parents, children with parents suffering from addiction, low-income families, and children whose grandparents are living in retirement communities allows our programs to reach some of San Diego's most underserved populations. Our three programs are provided year round in 16 sites throughout San Diego County with the help of over 200 volunteers. Since our inception in 2009, over 49,500 children, youth and family members have shared a storybook together through our programs!

To celebrate and honor the 70th Birthday of Apple Co-Founder and living legend, Steve 'Woz' Wozniak, we have created an online virtual birthday celebration along with some of Woz's closest friends and fans including Andrea Bocelli, Alejandro Sanz, Shaq, Jay Leno, Mark Cuban, Chris Rock, Tony Robbins and many more. The funds raised through Woz's birthday celebration, scavenger hunt and finale will go towards Woz's favorite foundation-Jewel's Inspiring Children Foundation. Co-created by Grammy Nominated Singer-Songwriter Jewel, Ryan Wolfington, and Marty Hennessy, for 18 years The Inspiring Children Foundation and Never Broken program has been empowering children struggling with financial hardship, anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation by giving them the ultimate environment to survive then thrive at the highest levels. With teenage suicide up 70%, anxiety and depression doubling, the foundation has been at the forefront of solving this mental health epidemic. The program arms at-risk youth with everything they need to be physically, emotionally and mentally healthy in a fun and inspirational way, online and in person. This ecosystem of excellence includes; emotional intelligence, SEL, mindfulness/meditation, DBT, Trauma treatment, group counseling and mentoring, leadership development, entrepreneur skills, nutrition, yoga, tennis, sleep science, and academics. 80% of operations are run by the children. Children gain know-how, an understanding of themselves, and confidence by earning their way in the real life “project driven learning” program. The young leaders have been so academically, athletically and personally developed that 95% have been offered scholarships and admissions into the best colleges in the world including: Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Georgetown, Penn-Wharton, Brown, Dartmouth, Williams, Columbia, Naval Academy, USC, Vanderbilt and 100 more. Most importantly these children are being armed with a “psychology for life” that helps them to generate their own peace of mind and contentment as self-actualized leaders.
