Our Vision Statement

The Emily Shane Foundation strives to inspire deep, personal change that further develops our students into contributing and compassionate members of society.

Our Mission Statement

Our driving mission is to support local, disadvantaged students with the educational resources they need to thrive in middle school and beyond. We not only offer individualized academic coaching and mentorship, but we work hard to build relationships that are positive and lasting.

Our Value Statement

At the Emily Shane Foundation, we believe that inside every student, there is infinite potential. We also understand that life is inherently complicated. Many families face challenging circumstances that can be limiting and, at times, feel impossible to our youth.

It’s for that reason we founded our signature SEA Program. The Successful Educational Achievement Program targets students who face academic struggles and are most at risk of “falling through the cracks”. We offer individualized academic coaching and mentorship to those who could not otherwise afford this necessary support to pave the way to our students’ best academic and personal potential.

Embracing our foundation’s “Pass it Forward” motto, students are requested to perform a good deed or act of kindness for every SEA Program session. Our aim is for these youth to embed this concept into their everyday lives, and acquire a social consciousness.

With every interaction, we strive to inspire deep, personal change that further develops our students into contributing and compassionate members of society.

Our DEI Statement

The Emily Shane Foundation embraces diversity, equity and inclusion related to all involved with our foundation in any capacity.

Our commitment is for all to experience a culture of belonging, fostering a positive environment for every person to thrive.
