All funds raised will support programming at Kindle Farm School. Kindle works with students in grades 2-12 who are unable to remain in a traditional classroom setting. By the time they arrive at Kindle Farm, these students are disillusioned with the educational process, which has been unable to meet their unique needs. Kindle Farm works with each student, tailoring their education based on their individual challenges, developing strong relationships, and building upon small successes. Oftentimes, after gaining new skills at Kindle Farm, these students are able to transition back into their sending school. However, many students will remain at Kindle Farm, graduating with a solid education and a variety of vocational skills.
