Why Donate to Sisu
My name is Jabez LeBret and this is me at about 3 years old. At this point no one knew what life held in store for me, but it wasn't going to be easy. By 16, through no choice of my own, I found myself homeless. I had not been engaged in school for a while and was headed toward disaster. Sure enough I didn't graduate from high school. And so my first real lesson was that life happens.
We are going to do something about it starting today, and so are you. We are opening our doors in 10 months so the time is now.
Just like me, most of us have experienced struggles in life. That is why we started Sisu. Not just because we want to, because we have to.
We are building a tuition-free boarding high school for students that are experiencing life struggles preventing them from learning in a traditional school environment. In fact, we don't want to be traditional. We want to be exceptional.
THE BONUS - Your donation has a compounding impact. Our school model includes an embedded program where students are paired with business community members to solve real business problems. Some of the solutions are going to kick into an on-campus accelerator with seed funding where we will take those ideas to market.
This means your dollar today will support creating a system that takes ZERO tax dollars, no vouchers, is tuition-free and ultimately pays for itself.
As the Chief of Schools I want to personally thank you in advance for your help.
