The See Forever Foundation began with a small program in a pizza shop and now supports four Maya Angelou Schools across the District of Columbia. We have launched the Campaign For Our Future so that we can continue to offer young people the highest-quality education—and a second chance—for years to come.
Over the next two years, we will be embarking on a $23 million renovation to transform our Evans Campus into the Maya Angelou Learning Center. This state-of-the-art facility, located at 5600 East Capitol Street, NE, will house our Middle and High School programs, as well as our new Young Adult Learning Center. By consolidating our charter schools into one facility, we will realize nearly $1 million in annual operational savings. As a result, we will be able to redirect our resources from operating expenses to the enhancement of critical programming for our students: small classes, extended day programs, onsite counseling and mental health services, and college and postsecondary supports for our alumni.
Once renovated, this state-of-the-art campus will educate up to 750 students annually in Ward 7, an area of the city where educational attainment rates are lower and youth/young adult unemployment rates far exceed the rate for the District as a whole. The funds raised from the Campaign For Our Future initiative are a key component of the overall financing plan. To date, we have exceeded our original goal but intend to keep the campaign going until we break ground in the fall to ensure that we have the funding necessary to complete and sustain our vision for the future.
