Summer Work Academy 2020 + We've Moved!!!

Hey R3 Family!

Check out the video from our Executive Director and join us as we empower ESTL youth this summer and beyond!

Ways you can help:

  1. Help us furnish our new office by June 4.  We welcome new or used items.  Please use the link to access our Amazon Wish List. (Deadline to order is Thursday, June 4.) You can click right here for the wish list:

  2. For $6.00 per day, you can supply a healthy breakfast, lunch, and a snack for one student.

  3. For $135.00 per week, you can completely cover the internship cost for one student, which includes meals, clothing, workbooks, construction materials, and a work stipend.

We are thrilled to announce that we have moved into our new office in the heart of East St Louis!  This will be the base of our internship for this summer.  It is much larger than our previous office, providing much-needed classroom and office space.

In the past, you have generously provided meals, funds, and volunteer support for our internships. 

Due to Covid-19, things are going to look a little different for us, and we will not be asking for volunteers to prepare and serve food.  Instead, we are reaching out for financial donations to cover the cost of our internship. 

This year, a select team of students will be preparing and serving the meals.  We believe this will not only provide a healthy, contained environment for food preparation, but it will also teach food safety and service skills to our students.

The summer internship will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from June 9th through July 30th. We plan to have 15 interns. They will be trained in the following areas: Leadership development, cooking, math, shop, career development, admin & logistics.

Will you consider partnering with us?
