ROLL CALL - GET ON THE BUS
"All for 1 would like to create an environment which would allow a child to dream beyond their current state and help to make their dreams become reality" - Shandrin Tollie
A dream is a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. That’s the concept behind the T 4 T initialize. All for 1 would like to create an environment which would allow a child to dream beyond their current state and help to make their dreams become reality. Sadly, not all children are fortunate to see past their current conditions. The children whom we speak of and know too well are most at-risk children. At-risk children are affected by poverty, lack of family guidance and support, and negative influence. An at-risk youth is a child who is less likely to transition successfully into adulthood. Success can include academic success, and job readiness, as well as financial independence. A simple charter bus would give All for 1 the opportunity to expose at-risk children ages 5-19 to various places such as, colleges, vocational-tech schools, visual and performing arts, historical museums and countless other sites they would never dream of visiting with the hope that this will encourage an influx of newfound information and thoughts of possibilities. The single most important “Tool” is the Charter Bus.
While on the charter bus All for 1 will provide life lessons, social skills, factual historical information, and encouraging open dialogue to build positive and nourishing relationships. All for 1 is convinced that being on a charter bus for hours would provide an endless amount of information that an average at-risk child would not normally receive in their day-to-day interactions. The T4T initiative will be used as a life-changing vehicle and the charter bus will be the apparatus used to encourage an at-risk child to not only dream the same dream that every other child dreams but start to “believe” in their dreams.
