Price is doing what we can to help children cultivate the rewards of journey.
“Through traveling our preconceptions are challenged and you will see other, perhaps better, ways of accomplishing positive things.” – Forbes, 2018*
Here at Price, we are passionate about those who seek to inspire. For that reason, we are excited to support this year’s Discover America event for St. Marcus School here in Milwaukee.
St. Marcus provides a high-quality education to predominantly low-income children, and collaborates with other organizations to strengthen families and communities. This year they are hosting their inspirational program once again.
Discover America is a fantastic opportunity that allows middle school children to first-handedly broaden their aspirational horizons. These budding scholars will get to learn beyond the borders of a classroom and cultivate the vital benefits that occur with traveling.
This year round program hosts a wide variety of field trips tailored to each class grade level. Younger students will be inspired by attending art museums, plays and musicals while the older children are able to embark on nationwide trips far and wide such as journeying to the enchanting Grand Canyon, hiking the Lewis & Clark Trail, or discovering landmarks here in Wisconsin. If that wasn’t great enough, college visits are also a key part of the Discover America program to show scholars that attendance is a tangible goal.
Empowering kids to travel with care helps them build their personal autonomy, hone their group accountability skills, and develop relationships with others. Perhaps more importantly, learning how to adapt in new environments fosters healthy stress coping mechanisms they can use their whole lives!
Traveling is one of the most beneficial ventures a person can practice, even more-so early in life. Engaging in novel experiences different than the routine expands our perception of the world around us.
As a donor, you are invited to follow the trips on Facebook to see the impact of your gift. If you do provide a donation, you will receive postcards as tokens of appreciation from the young scholars along their travels.
Help us support the cause of inspiring the next generation. Schedule a conversation with a Discover America representative at St. Marcus Schools to personally discuss sponsoring, perhaps over a cup of coffee or bite to eat.
