[District of Columbia, January 27, 2014]– During National Mentoring Month Everybody Wins! DC (EW!DC) recognizes several leading Washington Metropolitan Area corporations and foundations who are paving the way for youth literacy through their sponsorship of our mentoring programs. Together, these organizations are our Lead Mentor Sponsors for the 2013-2014 school year.
Power comes with innovation, and each year, Target’s innovative modes of support for Everybody Wins! DC (EW!DC) bring new dimension to the Power Lunch program.
Target has always moved beyond its financial commitment to support EW!DC. Now in its fourth year as Lead Mentor Corporate Sponsor for three Power Lunch programs, Target has pledged to sponsor every one of the monthly book distributions to each participating student in the Target-sponsored programs at D.C. elementary schools Amidon-Bowen, Tyler and Brent.
This month during National Mentoring Month, we join millions of other Americans to celebrate those who take time to mentor our children. These early years are a critical juncture in their development and we cannot miss a chance to do whatever it takes to help our children build self confidence and self-esteem, develop tools to make good decisions, and encourage them to garner the rewards of staying in school.
Wellness and prevention are Kaiser Permanente’s watchwords, and they are put into practice in a special way through the Power Lunch program at Ludlow-Taylor Elementary School. For the third year in a row, Kaiser Permanente is the Lead Mentor Corporate Sponsor (LMCS) for Everybody Wins! DC’s (EW!DC’s) Power Lunch program at Ludlow-Taylor. This means Kaiser will continue to send mentors to the school to read with students; will commit to funding the program through the school year; and will bring its strong position as a health care provider to bear on a couple of exciting new initiatives, as well.
