Join us for the buildOn Sun Salutations and Service yoga series final class on the rooftop of FFC Gold Coast on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 celebrating service, community and Chicago students that are overcoming all odds to change their neighborhoods. All proceeds from this series benefit buildOn programming in Chicago. To find out more information on buildOn please see below or visit buildOn.
Our final class will take us to the beautiful rooftop of FFC Gold Coast with the skyline of downtown Chicago as your zen background. Pictures are optional but practicing with others helping to change their community is required. Class begins at 6:30 pm sharp and registration will open at 6:00 pm. Please be sure to arrive early and check out the KIND booth with all sorts of wonderful give aways.
The class is free but we request you make a $20 donation to help the students continue to change their communities on Chicago's South and West Side and build schools in developing countries. All donations are 100% tax deductible and help to benefit students at buildOn.
Towels and mats will be limited for each event so please bring your own if possible. Water will be provided and unique raffle prizes from KIND Bar, Lululemon, Barefeet Power Yoga, and Lagunitas Brewery will be given away.
buildOn's mission is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education.
buildOn’s afterschool youth service programs mobilize urban teens to lift up their communities and change the world through intensive local community service and by building schools in some of the poorest countries on the planet.We are a movement of students, educators and communities.We believe in the power of partnerships that passionately act for the common good. Through our afterschool programs, teens inspire people across neighborhoods, across cities, and across continents to reach and think beyond their realm of possibility.
buildOn’s Global School Construction Program provides rural communities in developing nations across the globe with access to education. We are breaking ground on a new school every four days with the help of our U.S. afterschool program members, donors and parents who have provided almost 1,000,000 volunteer work days to build schools for their children.Through a methodology that puts gender equality at the forefront and villagers in control, we are providing not only schools, but the knowledge and the power to change entire communities.
