March 2021 Charity of the Month: Our Future Matters
Our Future Matters has been selected as Bonneville Seattle’s Charity of the Month for March 2021.
The organization works to empower Pacific Islander youth to advocate for equity in education, engage in learning experiences and become community leaders.
Through their Summer Leadership Academy, high school juniors and seniors engage in curriculum designed to develop their leadership skills, civic engagement and exploration and expression of the cultures of the Pacific Islands. Our Future Matters’ after school club at Cascade Middle School helps with homework, mentoring and building relationships while studying the culture of the Pacific Islands.
Additionally, Our Future Matters assists with the annual UPRISE Educational Summit, which aims to engage high school students, parents, and teachers across South King County and extend their network with the goal of pushing students towards academic success.
