MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Globe University and Minnesota School of Business have selected ten 2013 We Care award recipients: Eden Valley-Watkins High School (Minn.), Hayfield High School (Minn.), Spooner High School (Wis.), Freedom High School (Wis.), Buffalo High School and Phoenix Area Learning Center in Buffalo (Minn.), Apple Valley, Eagan, Eastview and Rosemount High Schools (Minn.), and East Ridge High School (Minn.). The We Care award is a way for the colleges to give back through education to the campus communities and to support positive character building in local high schools.
The We Care award provides high schools with a complimentary Youth Frontiers retreat. Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that partners with schools to build positive communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Its vision is to change the way kids treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom in America. Youth Frontiers' goals directly align with the Globe University and Minnesota School of Business We Care mission of building communities through education.
"Globe University and Minnesota School of Business have been sponsoring Youth Frontiers retreats for the past six years, and have funded more than 61 retreats for more than 7,500 students in our campus communities," said Mindy Myhre, director of community service and charitable giving. "We Care guides everything we do from academics to scholarships to community partnerships to ensure that student needs are always first."
High schools across Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Sioux Falls area were eligible to apply for a retreat funded entirely by Globe University and Minnesota School of Business. The awarded schools explained how a retreat would align with their current goals, and how their school would benefit from a Youth Frontiers retreat. During the Responsibility and Wisdom retreats, junior students will have the opportunity to learn how to set a positive tone as they enter their final year of high school. Seniors will learn how to finish off their high school career in a caring and respectful way.
"We are thankful for Globe University and Minnesota School of Business' continued support of Youth Frontiers," said Joe Cavanaugh, founder and CEO of Youth Frontiers. "Due to the colleges' generosity, local high school students will have the opportunity to learn important character building skills that they will use for their lifetime."
