The Little Blue House (LBH) works with children and their parents in low-income communities to foster students' social and academic development in a safe, supportive environment. Through constructive activities and focus-improving exercises, the organization aims to ensure healthy behavioral development, including full participation in class and the formation of strong social bonds with both peers and adults.
LBH hosts an Out-of-School Time program that meets after school for the duration of the academic year, providing a haven where local children from low-income families can engage in fun, developmental activities. The program concentrates on three areas of improvement in students: socialization, verbalization, and impulse control. Structured social activities teach children to listen and follow instructions, verbally express thoughts and feelings, and resist acting out in disruptive ways. LBH's program helps to instill discipline in children and engage withdrawn students in meaningful, constructive social interactions with their peers.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help The Little Blue House provide afterschool programming to guide the development of underserved children. If G-Team members raise $120, with matching donations from an anonymous sponsor, then LBH can cover the costs of one month of afterschool programming for one student. Each additional $225 raised will fund a month of afterschool programming for another child. Donations will be matched up to $10,000.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
