Jaguar Land Rover reaches out to communities across the country to support innovative education initiatives that help remove learning barriers for young students.
Jaguar Land Rover has taken a stand in supporting progressive education initiatives to support students in distressed urban and rural communities. The company recently awarded a one year grant to the Children’ Health Fund to pilot a new school-based model that brings students and parents together with educators and health professionals to support education by removing learning barriers. Jaguar will provide $500,000 to the Children’s Health Fund to support their “Healthy and Ready to Learn” initiative.
Healthy Students Can Succeed
The grant will support the creation of the first school-based health/learning support program that combines healthy lifestyle choices and learning support to create an environment in which childhood education can thrive. It brings together experts from both the education and healthy fields to support children in a more well-rounded way. The health experts work closely with education professionals and parents and students to identify barriers that may impede a child’s ability to learn such as hearing, dental, or vision problems, hunger, anemia, and more. The Children’s Health Fund already has mobile units that serve underprivileged students throughout the country. The grant will make it possible to launch the first school-based program that will initially serve around 700 students in South Bronx.
The grant is funded by Jaguar Land Rover’s corporate social responsibility platform. The company is dedicated to sponsoring initiatives that work to serve educational, environmental, humanitarian and health issues across the world. Jaguar hopes to help improve the lives of at least 12 million people by the year 2020. In addition to corporate grants, the company also encourages service on a local level as dealerships reach out to support programs in their own communities.
Jaguar Funds Local California Initiative
For example, here in Southern California, Jaguar Land Rover has announced they will give $130,000 to the P.S. ARTS non-profit that reaches out to students who would not otherwise have access to the arts in schools.
At Jaguar Santa Barbara, we are proud to be a part of such a conscientious company and are dedicated to giving back to our community through local fund raising and charity events. To find out how you can get involved or to follow our efforts, visit us on Facebook or online for ongoing updates.
