The critical thinking and social skills children get from First Move are valuable life skills. At less than $25 per student for an entire year, it’s a low-cost program, but schools have very little money for enrichment programs. Our generous donors help to offset the cost so schools can implement First Move.
Schools need help in the first year when the program is $650 per classroom. They are able to fund continuing years at $100 per classroom. That means after 5 years, a one-time donation of $5000 will have made it possible for the school to deliver First Move to over 750 students!
