girlpicEach day and every day, we at Value Schools know the importance of giving!

And we know giving begins with the discovery of our skills, talents and passions.

"When I was younger, I could only sing for my family," says Yulissa, a 7th grade student at Everest Value School. "But now that I've come to this school, I can speak to my entire class. If it wasn't for music, I'd never have the confidence to do that."

Yulissa spent the last two years in the EVS Music Program at Everest Value School, and it has changed the way she communicates, studies and sees her education.

"My dream now is to become a singer," Yulissa says, smiling. "I want to finish school and go to a university. And then I want to teach music to kids. If I can share music, it will make them feel more passionate and more confident - just like I am now."

See the impact of the Value Schools Music Program on Yulissa, a 7th grade student from Everest Value School.

Value Schools aims to surround our students with caring and inspiring adults who cultivate students' personal potential and self-worth.

Join us on this Giving Tuesday as we celebrate those who give back to the communities in which they live, work and thrive. Help Yulissa and students just like her on their journeys of discovery by supporting the EVS Music Program.

"It feels good when you find something you love to do, especially when it makes you more confident." Yulissa reminds us. "And everyone should have a little music in their lives."

Thank you for giving your time, resources, and skills to amplify what is possible and to improve what makes us stronger!
