The ISA Team has selected the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy for our Just Cause parter for the 2013-14 year. The CGLA in Tennessee is a single gender, small learning community for girls from primarily disadvantaged circumstances in grades 6-12. The college preparation curriculum is centered on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). With an extended day and a year round calendar, CGLA offers girls an accelerated and integrated remediation approach that is intended to move them to proficient and advanced levels within core academic subjects. A range of social supports that reflects girls’ social development needs are integrated into the educational experience.
Just Cause is the ISA campaign to change the conversation about poverty. The Just Cause campaign has two essential purposes:
- We seek to increase access to quality education for distressed children by changing the conversation about poverty.
- We partner with one organization each year to help them achieve their access mission by providing pro bono strategic services to them.
We take on one research and strategy consulting project per year under the Just Cause campaign, for which we receive many inquiries for services. These are typically pro bono or reduced fee consulting projects assisting educational organizations that serve distressed populations of children or youth.
Let's Change the Conversation on Poverty. We all know that transformation requires education. Let's change the conversation on poverty. Join our campaign by sharing our Just Cause page to others or tweeting your thoughts to the hashtag #JustCause.
