Who is New World Flood?
New World Flood is a local, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that empowers youth in many different ways. We empower youth to get involved in their communities. We empower youth to excel in their academics. We empower youth to give to those that have been impacted by a nature disaster. On August 19, 2013 New World Flood is empowering Lansing area youth to prepare for a successful 2013-14 school year.
What Experience does New World Flood have in a Back to School Event?
In previous years, New World Flood has partnered with businesses and other organizations to provide backpacks. Last year, we were able to hand out 1,500 backpacks to Lansing area students. However, in an effort to make students and their parents aware of all of the opportunities that are available to them, New World Flood has decided to take the lead and expand the event, so this year we are holding a Back to School Expo.
What is the Back to School Expo?
The Back to School Expo is a community-wide educational event, focused on the Lansing area students. This event is designed to prepare kids, kindergarten through 12th grade, to start school as healthy and prepared students. The event will also provide parents and guardians access to the best resources in the area available to help the students succeed in life and learning.
The expo will feature organizations and businesses in the Lansing area that are in place to help our area students excel. For example, if a student no longer has a specific art class during the school day, they will learn where they can go to work on their skill outside of school. This year, a student won’t just walk away from the event with a backpack, but also with an increased awareness of opportunities to succeed in the Lansing area.
