Explore the true meaning of giving back by investing the first morning of your IDN Summit experience helping to provide resources and free surplus materials to teachers and students in need. You’ll work in a collaborative environment of ten team members to benefit the Orlando-based non-profit, A Gift For Teaching.
A Gift For Teaching serves 338 public schools. There are more than 210,000 kids whose families live at or below the poverty line. But the most shocking number is that 13,000 of those students are homeless.
Picture a child at school trying to write without a pencil, read without books or dream without the tools to put their ideas onto paper. This is the reality for far too many students in our community. For thousands, these basic learning tools are a luxury. In fact, more than 65% of the students in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties come from families that can’t afford lunch, let alone school supplies.
Moved by this need and the fact that teachers, on average, spend $500 – $1,000 out of their own pockets each year to provide basic supplies for their students, philanthropist and nonprofit professional, Gary Landwirth, founded A Gift For Teaching (AGFT) in 1998.
This year Vizient has challenged the IDN Summit attendees to join together to benefit A Gift For Teaching! You’ll collaborate with other team members to learn new strategies and work together to meet this worthwhile challenge.
Breakfast will be provided. Dress is comfortable.
