goInspo’s Giving Back – Back to School Initiativeby go Inspo | 1 year ago
For our community, it’s extremely important to give back. Most of our efforts to date have been raising awareness and discussions around important topics. All the back to school conversations are happening now. Retail stores are ramping up, TV advertisements are showcasing their hot new school items and kids are eagerly awaiting their first day of school with some being very excited and others a bit nervous.
Starting today and until August 17th (TWO MORE DAYS LEFT), we’re highlighting Broadway Highschool, part of the Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (FCS). Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley is a division of Caminar that brings mental wellness services on-campus in high need communities. One of their newest school partners is Broadway High School, a continuation school in San Jose, California, that supports students who identify as foster youth, experience poverty, and homelessness, and face many educational barriers.
We’re sharing our core values of giving back through a school supply drive where you can help ensure students have the essential tools they need to learn! FCS sees individual stories of perseverance and resilience in each young person; this tangible display of caring and support will spark and sustain the students’ commitment this school year.

As Broadway High Principal Giovanni Bui points out, “School supplies will remove some of the basic barriers to pursuing their education.”
FCS’s Director of School-Based Services Maritza Henry says, “We’ve seen what it means to a young person who feels weighed down by challenges to receive gifts of necessities—new!—from people they have never met. It shows them they are seen and valued.”
Note: Broadway HS has about 250 students.
Thank you to the FCS team and in particular, Shirley, who has been an avid supporter of goInspo from the very beginning!
