PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

black kid struggles with books(Edgewater NJ) –   Support One. Benefit One. Help One. Such is the mission of a new nonprofit organization, ONE UP ALL FOUNDATION who goal is to provide assistance to worthy and needy students to help them achieve more academically.

One Up All takes a unique approach to its educational aspiration mission. It focuses on the needs of one worthy and needy student. By not focusing on a community group like a school or church, ONE UP ALL is able to drill down to a specific need and remedy it.

One Up All is able to focus its attention to solving the immediate problem of one student in grades K-12 who is identified by a school, church or parent.

One Up All using grants, corporate and individual donations provides services in four areas:

  • Computer/ Wi-Fi Access
  • Individual and Group Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Financial Assistance


WHO IS WORTHY?

One Up All has a broad definition for worthy.  Naturally, the high test scoring, STEM kids are in the candidate pool. But One Up All recognizes that there is another pool of candidates who, because of need, are unable to reach their full potential and aspirations.  It is that latter group that tends to fall through the cracks, whose needs go recognized and unanswered, and who’s very existence cab be unknown.

One Up All asks the local community to identify students.  It then vets student candidates by contacting their teachers, school administrators and the student themselves when necessary.  OUA assistance is ongoing.  They follow students to ensure that their contributions continue to be needed and have been put to good use. Report Cards as well as the reports of tutors, mentors and others go into a student’s record and are evaluated to continue or halt assistance.
