Weekly Update with Mark – Committed to Serving

Last week I talked about how we at The Leaven are taking careful care of your donations and trust you have given us. But we know we have an important mission, and it is with this in mind that we commit to the greatest care possible for the children we serve.

In order to ensure we provide the highest quality tutoring possible to our students, we regularly invite local educators to review our programs, both formally and informally, to ensure that we are using the best possible teaching methods.

This care extends to our staff, who are all extensively trained one-on-one with an experienced site director so each of our programs maintains the same level of excellence in care and teaching you’ve come to expect from The Leaven. And this standard extends to our volunteers, who are all background checked by local law enforcement to ensure the safety of the children we serve.

But we don’t just make sure to bring the right people in; we also stay focused on maintaining everyone’s safety within all of our programs. Each center has extra security to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff. Further, we safeguard all of our records so that none of our staff, volunteers’ or donors’ information is compromised.

We also strictly protect the safety and privacy of all of our students, never using their pictures or stories without permission, and by removing any information that could potentially harm a child.

And finally, at The Leaven, guests are always welcome. We want to show off how great our programs are, not only as a symbol of hope in our communities, but also as a model to others. We work hard to earn your trust, so we keep our doors open to you. We welcome our supporters to schedule a visit to observe the work. Why? We want you to be confident that The Leaven is an organization you can trust.

Thank you for believing in The Leaven. Together we are helping kids and communities rise!
