WBSM and ProGroup Contracting are teaming up to make sure that YMCA Southcoast's Power Scholar Academy can help to close the education gap in our community.

Dave Moura, President of ProGroup Contracting, challenges other business in New Bedford to help the YMCA Southcoast raise the money necessary to help at-risk students avoid summer learning loss that would otherwise put them behind their classmates when school starts in the fall.

What YOUR Donation Can Achieve:

  • $25: Can provide books and supplies for the classroom
  • $50: Provides Summer of field trips for ONE scholar
  • $100: Can provide 10 swim lessons for TWO scholars
  • $250: Can provide supplies & equipment for a classroom for 5 weeks
  • $500: Sends ONE scholar all five weeks of Academy.
  • $1,000: Covers the entire cost of ONE field trip for 96 Scholars

Donations made to the Power Scholars Academy will help to provide experience and supplies to scholars this summer and set them up for a successful start to school in the fall.

Donations by check can be made payable to YMCA Southcoast; 128 Union Street; New Bedford, Massachusetts, 02740 with Power Scholars in the memo.
