How long is a sponsorship commitment?
You can choose to sponsor a student for as long as you like. Our program is 3 years, but you are under no obligation to sponsor your student for the entire time. We sincerely appreciate recurring and one-time sponsorships. Once your student graduates, we would be happy to match you with another student who could benefit from your generous sponsorship.
We understand that situations arise, and that you may need to discontinue your sponsorship. If that happens, please contact us to let us know.
How many sponsors does each student have?
We are currently matching one student per a sponsor. However, there are times when students have to drop the class (usually due to long-term illness or pregnancy), and the number of students in the class decreases. In those cases, in order to meet the on-going needs of both programs, students may be paired with 1-3 - $30/month sponsors.
Students without consistent $30/month monthly sponsors may have several sponsors throughout the year to help cover their sponsorship.
Yes, unless you request a new student or your current students is no longer able to attend class. In the past, some students have dropped due to long-term illness or their families moving away from the area. In those cases, we will automatically pair you up with a new student.
Will I be paired with the same student for the duration of the program?
HOw Often will I receive updates?
If you sign-up to be a recurring monthly sponsor, at either the $15 or $30 per month level, we will also send you updates a few times a year about your student's progress in the program.
