Hello, my name is Eliane Menezes. I am the Founder and the Executive Director of Family School Together.
In 2004, as a mother of teenagers, I saw myself having the same needs and hopes as other families in my situation. I looked for added support to keep my children on the right path to finish school and for a program that could assist in that support. I was hoping for a program that motivates our youth to apply themselves to all aspects of their curriculum and encourages them to study harder for better grades. Unfortunately, I felt that it was economically impossible for families like mine. That’s when I had the idea to start FamilySchoolTogether. Today, December 1st, 2021, after almost 18 years, I get to wake up and have my dreams become a reality. I finally get to be the support I never had and assist in supporting families and high school students in need.
We hope to be fortunate enough to gain your support. Let’s work as a team to be a glimpse of hope for our students and become the change we want to see in the world around us!
