Lauren Murdock, Gift Implementation Intern from the University of Michigan
The Generation Project kicked off the 2010-2011 school year in a very exciting way -- all gifts were doubles thanks to JP Morgan Chase, creating twice as many classroom opportunities for students in-need. With gifts catering to all academic subjects and extracurriculars, teachers have been eagerly combing The Generation Project's website to claim gifts.
As a Gift Implementation intern, I have the unique responsibility of implementing all donor-designed opportunities in schools in our regions -- I am continually inspired by the exciting projects I share with teachers daily. Through The University of Michigan's Net Impact organization, students at WEB DuBois High School in Detroit received a laptop and various software to assist in creating a Robotics Team. Algebra got a lot more intense (and exciting!) this semester for Jessica Kelley's high school algebra classes -- she received numerous materia
ls including wipe boards for classroom activities and a number of interactive books and DVD’s; check out Jessica's gift page along with some of my other favorite gifts from this school year below:
Chicago High School Algebra Gifts
Dr. Seuss Books
Heading into the second half of the school year, the sky is the limit for what exciting educational experiences can be made possible -- it's all up to the creativity, passion, and generosity of The Generation Project's donors! I look forward to sharing new educational opportunities, inciting more innovation, and being part of The Generation Project's launch to schools in New Orleans and San Francisco!
Cheers to 2011!
