A Chance for Change

all about

The mission of A Chance for Change is to provide underserved communities with school supplies through our student-led program "Build a Backpack". 

With educational and leadership initiatives, our activities are designed to catalyze transformation rooted in the fundamentals of social responsibility and cultural acceptance. 

The core of our work lies in the continuous passion and dedication to providing students within developing countries with access to school supplies.

The heart of our Organization revolves around incorporating, encouraging, and empowering our youth’s confidence in their ability to make a difference.

Rooted in the philosophies of theorists and educators who believe students learn through meaningful experiences-

Our program, “Build a Backpack” is designed to complement existing core education that introduces issues from a global perspective by making these concerns local.

"Build a Backpack" partners with local schools to raise awareness about educational inequality and provides a philanthropic platform for students to get involved.

We start with a presentation introducing under-served communities, highlighting the importance of education for growth. We then proceed with an interactive event where students will move from stations of school supplies to assemble backpacks that will be sent across the globe to those in need.
