Empowering Education: Back 2 School America & Lincoln International

In an exciting development for educational support across the United States, Back 2 School America proudly announces our partnership kickoff with Lincoln International. This sponsorship launches with the ambitious "Build-A-Kit" campaign, spanning five of the nation's key cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, and New York. The initiative underscores a shared commitment to making a tangible difference in the lives of students in need, delivering essential school supplies directly into their hands.

The Power of a Back 2 School Kit

The "Build-A-Kit" events transcend the simple act of assembling school supplies. They represent a collective effort to sow seeds of hope, nurture potential, and cultivate communities that rally around the success of every student. Thanks to the generous spirit and support of Lincoln International, our reach extends further, touching more lives and illuminating more futures with the promise of education.

Capturing Moments of Impact

Over recent years, the Build-A-Kit initiative has sparked moments of pure joy, profound gratitude, and community unity. From the vibrant energy of New York to the warm embraces in Los Angeles, each kit crafted is a step towards bridging educational gaps. These events are a vivid showcase of solidarity, demonstrating that the journey towards academic achievement is one we undertake together.

Immersive photographs from our past events tell a story of engagement and impact:

  • Volunteers in Chicago, embodying the spirit of giving, meticulously assemble each kit.
  • The bright faces of Los Angeles children light up as they receive their school supplies.
  • The bond of San Francisco volunteers is a testament to the power of community.
  • A Dallas family’s heartfelt thanks, a reminder of the difference each kit makes.
  • New York students, armed with new supplies, step confidently into the school year.

Who Benefits?

The beneficiaries of these kits are students who face the challenge of accessing the basic tools for their education. These are children from underserved communities, families experiencing financial hardship, and schools that grapple with limited resources. 

Each kit, filled with pencils, notebooks, erasers, and more, is a beacon of support, signaling to these students that their community believes in their potential and is invested in their success. Through these kits, we not only equip them with school supplies but also with the confidence and encouragement needed to thrive academically.

A Future Bright with Promise

As this partnership with Lincoln International takes flight with the Build-A-Kit events, we're reminded of the profound impact collective action can have. This initiative is a vivid illustration of how collaboration can foster hope and change lives. To our volunteers and all who support our cause: your compassion and action are crafting a brighter future for countless students.

We invite you to follow along as we roll out these events in each city, celebrating the stories of progress and positivity that emerge. This journey is a testament to what we can achieve together, reinforcing our mission to ensure every child is equipped for success as they head back to school.

Let's continue to unite in support of education, building a foundation for tomorrow's leaders, dreamers, and achievers. The path to a better future is paved with the goodwill of today's actions.

About Back 2 School America

The Back 2 School program was launched in 2007 to address the pressing needs of communities and the inequities in educational opportunities for children. 

In 2015 the nonprofit changed its name to Back 2 School Illinois (B2SI) to reflect the work of the organization. In the summer of 2018, B2SI expanded and launched Back 2 School America, to provide Back 2 School kits to children across the USA. 

Today, B2SA continues to provide children of low-income households with free school supplies to help level the playing field and lessen the financial burden on their families and their teachers. The Back 2 School program has provided more than 350,000 children with their own school supply kit. The organization’s long-term goal is to make sure that all children in the USA are provided with the school supplies they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
