The Goal Card Program held another successful Redemption Day in January 2012. Volunteers from University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center and International Paper helped students with tutoring, as well as tallying points received for good grades and conduct to collect incentive's prizes. Additionally, Mrs. Heath Faraci, wife of International Paper CEO, John Faraci attended the event as a volunteer.
In addition to inspiring youth to excel in their studies, Goal Card teaches them about financial literacy and preparation for the future. RISE will host Planning for Your Future, a symposium for 11th and 12th graders. Attendees will explore various career paths, as well as discuss with professionals and participate in activities that illustrate the education and skills needed for those careers. The event will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the University of Memphis.
Goal Card continues to impact the 38126 area in Memphis. Thank you for your support in helping us to fulfill our mission of empowering people to become self-sufficient by building and sustaining human and financial assets.
