“To have the opportunity to showcase my project will help others see that they can make a change too regardless of how old they are or where they came from as long as they are passionate about what they do and stand for.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

Education 4 all aims to help youth in grades K-5th retain foundational literacy skills. As well as, encouraging good habits outside of school such as reading for 30 minutes daily.

About the Millennium Fellow

As a kid most of Alexa’s time was spent at her local Boys & Girls Club. By getting involved in programs there that taught her about the importance of leadership, education and giving back to the community, Alexa had the opportunity to grow as an individual and was encouraged to pursue a higher education. Now, as a young adult and a Boys & Girls Club Alumni, Alexa has been inspired to ignite change. Whether that be in my community or even the whole wide world. Alexa wants to inspire the next generation of young minds the same way that the Boys & Girls Club did for her.
