Email Twitter Facebook MySpace Stumble Upon Digg | More |

For the past two years, Xavier Reyes, 13, has traveled all the way from the Bronx to attend a Children’s Aid community school in Washington Heights. The reason is simple: your support has opened up a world of opportunity to him.

An eighth grader at our Mirabal Sisters campus, Xavier takes advantage of a variety of after-school programs that help reinforce what he learns each day. So far, he has participated in robotics club, taken a boat-building course and even attended a space camp halfway around the world, in Izmir, Turkey.
