The Shadow Projecthttp://www.shadow-project.org
The Shadow Project helps struggling students become more successful and engaged in learning. We have a proven track record of fostering social and academic growth for schoolchildren among the highest risk of later dropping out of school. The Shadow Project works collaboratively with special education teachers who implement our ready-made program in their classrooms. Together we inspire boys and girls with disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia, autism, and emotional and behavioral disorders. These students – two thirds of whom are from homes at or below the poverty level – work toward individual goals, earning books, school supplies, educational toys and gifts for family members. They learn real-life lessons in budgeting, giving and self-sufficiency.
