2020 Joint AE Institute Charity Project – The Monarch School

Homelessness is a prevalent and growing issue in the United States. There are more than 1.2 million homeless children across the country and 23,000 in San Diego County alone. Research reveals that homelessness contributes to physical and psychological challenges including safety fears and academic struggles. The challenges youngsters face can affect them today and for years to come.

About The Monarch School, San Diego, CA

The Monarch School, named by students to signify the transformation process of beautiful and successful butterflies, helps give children the skills needed to help them overcome the odds. From a one-room education center in 1987 to a successful K-12 comprehensive school, this public-private 501-c-3 partnership continues to make Monarch a recognized leader in the education and support of homeless youth.
