Above and Beyond the playground has added a second location at Brown Deer Middle/High school. We wanted to share our passion for developing the whole person with the students at Brown Deer. Our trailblazer (grades6-8) program is supporting 15-20 students Monday through Thursday. We are helping students develop self efficacy and advocacy skills that will transcend sports.
The Brown Deer culture was a main reason we wanted to support their school. They have very similar values as an organization that we have. Brown Deer strongly believes in building relationships, they are committed building skills of the students, and have endearment for sports that the whole community supports. We are weaving together to common threads that’ll continue to create hope and opportunities for the children we serve together.
The Brown Deer team has been terrific to work with. They are 100% committed to providing A safe place for students to thrive and grow into their full potential. They have a heavy emphasis on building community through strong and healthy relationships just like we do. The younger kids bring so many unique gifts and talents. We students who play instruments, are involved with dance and many who heavily involved with sports. This make up a diverse group of students who are make our work with them all the more enjoyable.
