Throughout the year, PLS Classes supports local, national, and international organizations that are dedicated to helping leaders in education, teachers, students and their families. Over the past six months we have given back to three different organizations based upon enrollments in our graduate courses. Here’s a short recap of the organizations we were able to support. Please check them out! They’re doing an amazing job.
Pride Month Donation, June 2022
To show our support for the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month, we donated to GLSEN, a national network of educators, students, and local GLSEN Chapters to ensure the rights of LGBTQ youth are protected. We donated $70 to GLSEN to support their mission to create safe and inclusive schools for LGBTQ+ youth nationwide.
Donation to Ukraine, April 2022
Throughout the month of April, we donated to the World Central Kitchen (WCK), a worldwide, not-for-profit organization providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. The organization’s most recent effort is serving food to displaced families of Ukraine, providing over one million fresh meals to those fleeing their homes and those who are staying in the country. We were able to donate over $1,000 to WCK to aid their global humanitarian efforts.
Black History Month Donation, February 2022
To celebrate Black History Month, we donated to Butterfly Dreamz, a Black-founded and led organization focused on helping young women fill powerful leadership roles. Through mentorship, scholarships, and youth-led community action, Butterfly Dreamz equips girls to be confident leaders who disrupt the status quo. We were able to donate over $100 to Butterfly Dreamz to help make a difference for these women involved in this organization.
