Collaboratively, Eagle Tech Academy has a new perspective of homelessness and we would like to share that with the community!
Homelessness isn’t something that many tend to consider, and the students here want to change this. This trimester, the students have been working in their advisory classes, side by side with the Lighthouse, to help those in need.
The Lighthouse is a transitional shelter located here in Columbia City, IN. Their main goal is to help those who need shelter and assistance, whether this is an individual or a family. The Lighthouse works with their clients for three months to a year to help them get back on track and employed, as well as giving classes in other areas.
Each of Eagle Tech’s advisory classes have been working hard studying and learning about homelessness and hearing other’s stories. Each class has come up with a project to help the Lighthouse in some way. These projects range from landscaping jobs to fundraising and each student has been involved in the process. We want to show off all of our work that we have done in an end of the year gallery walk on May 28th at 9am-10:15am here at Eagle Tech. You can arrive any time between 9-10:15 and stay for as long as you’d like. You will be met at the doors by a tour guide who will lead you to various classrooms where students will show you the work that they have put together. After the gallery walk, we will have a Rethink Homelessness Ceremony in the gym where awards will be given and any final products will be presented to the Lighthouse board of directors; everyone is invited to this as well! We would love to have as many in attendance as possible, so tell your friends and your family to come out and Rethink Homelessness!” #liveunited
