Pepin Academies

It’s not every day you meet someone who has a vision to create an organization that gives 100% whole-heartedly to the less fortunate. It seems like just yesterday Children Across Borders came to the aide of children with specific learning disabilities here at Pepin Academies. The Seth’s passion, heart and drive is what makes Children Across Boarders the prestigious non-profit that it is today. Children Across Borders has supported us from their very beginning, providing Pepin Academies with the math curriculum needed to help our students meet the Common Core standards. We are thankful for the partnership we have created and are grateful for their support. It’s organizations like Children Across Borders that help make us the successful education model we are today— helping children that otherwise may have fallen through the cracks.

Train Up First

I am writing on behalf of the 350 under-privileged student-athletes who, as a result of a very generous grant from Children Across Borders, have been provided with the basic life skills they need to improve their chances of succeeding academically and in life.

The challenge for most student-athletes is not material comprehension. The problem is organization: missed homework assignments, not knowing when tests, quizzes or papers are due, forgetting what material to study, messy backpacks or disorganized binders. The Train Up Foundation works to teach organizational and time management skills, goal setting, nutrition and accountability to youth.

Our ability to offer the program in four area Title I Schools would not have been possible without their support.

Seeing the lives change of so many students through this program has been very heart warming.

We are so grateful to CAB!

Head of School
Academy Prep Center of Tampa

Over the past four years, Children Across Borders has been instrumental in providing critical funding and volunteer support for Academy Prep’s afterschool enrichment programs and summer academic sessions. Our financially underprivileged students, supported by the generosity and commitment of Children Across Borders, are given the opportunity to expand their intellectual and social horizons through drama, music, and the study of Shakespeare. Our children are incredibly fortunate to have Children Across Borders supporting them.

Voices For Children

Children Across Borders has been an incredible supporter of Voices for Children since 2012. Their contribution to the Children’s Needs Fund has changed the lives of hundreds of children right here in Hillsborough County. The generous contribution of Children Across Border has helped to provide clothing, tutoring, sports gear, text books, bunk beds, shoes, and much more for our community’s most desperate children. We are so honored and proud to have Children Across Borders as a supporter and a community partner. We simply could not do what we do with them!
