In order to provide opportunities for children to reach their full potential, the Wright Family Foundation will focus on several goals and strategies to support at-risk youth in Baltimore, Maryland and Austin, Texas.

 

K-12 Education

Goal: Children will have access to programs to prepare them for kindergarten.

  • Support educational field trips to enhance curriculum.
  • Support alternative education programs particularly in the arts.

 

Out of School Time

Goal: At-risk youth will have consistent support from caring adults who will provide motivation, direction and guidance.

Strategies:

  • Support initiatives that provide a safe haven for children after-school during the “danger hours” that promote academic achievement and personal growth and development.
  • Support community and school-based summer programs to prevent summer learning loss.

 

Teenage Pregnancy

Goal: Reduce teen and pre-teen pregnancy in Austin

Strategies:

  • Support pro-active health education in Austin schools.
