Adopt A Classroom

Adopt a classroom today by funding the items that our classrooms need most.

The Adopt-a-Classroom program partners with schools and teachers to provide classroom support for the school year. Our goal is to help create caring school climates that provide students with positive role models, engage them in co-curricular school activities, and reward their academic achievements. The support we offer ranges from back-to-school supplies to guest speakers, to field trips and micro-grants, depending on the dreams and needs of each classroom.

At the beginning of the school year each student participating in the program tells us their long-term educational or career ambition, their shorter-term academic goal for the school year, and provides a list of things that can help them to accomplish that goal. Then we work with the teacher to bring in classroom presenters or go on field trips that will complement the teacher’s curriculum and give students exposure to the subjects that are most interesting to them. In addition, the Adopt A Classroom program funds micro-grants that allow us to provide the items that will support these students in accomplishing their educational goals for the year.

Capture the Dream is partnering with James Lick Middle School in San Francisco for the 2015-2016 school year with two classrooms participating in the Adopt a Classroom Program.
