What's happening this fall at S/PA

Dear S/PA Community:
 
We hope that after the long hot summer you are all looking forward to the fall as we are!
 
This school year, we welcome 50 new students and their families, along with new Partners, Mentors, Sponsors, Board and Staff members. 
A full early fall program is planned with student orientation, mentor training and in-person breakfasts and lunches at the students’ schools.  You will be receiving invitations to these events in early September.
 
Wishing you the very best for the remainder of the summer and we look forward to seeing you again soon,
 
Maggie and the S/PA team

CHECK OUT THIS NY TIMES ARTICLE!
 
The New York Times article, "Vast New Study Shows a Key to Reducing Poverty: More Friendships Between Rich and Poor," discusses a study published in Nature, which analyzed the Facebook friendships of 72 million people. The study found that "...even in places lacking in other kinds of social capital, an increase in cross-class relationships is enough to benefit children's economic prospects." 

The article points out that "...mentorship programs can build cross-class relationships, by pairing people with different socio-economic backgrounds for extended periods of time."
