Bright Futures Pea Ridge works within the Pea Ridge School District to connect student needs with existing community resources.
The Bright Futures model brings together businesses, human service agencies, faith-based organizations, and parent groups and partners them with schools in a way that helps them to quickly and efficiently meet students’ basic needs – often within 24 hours. This enables students and teachers to focus on education and achieving success.
Bright Futures Pea Ridge works to create an environment where education is valued and responsibility for student success is shared. Bright Futures operates under the belief that when a community invests its time, talent, and treasure into its schools, students are more likely to stay in school through graduation, have a higher degree of self-worth and confidence, and set and reach goals for the future. In turn, these students grow up to be better neighbors, quality employees, and impactful leaders in their communities.
Through its organizational structure, Bright Futures provides a framework for expanding current programs such as the Stuff the Bus school supply drive, Back to School Bash, and the Bright Futures Exchange , as well as initiating new programs to support students.
Bright Futures strives to meet individual student's basic needs using Facebook as a rapid response system. The goal is to meet any student's need within 24 hours. To become a fan, go to https://www.facebook.com/BrightFuturesPeaRidge/
