BeGreat Together, the philanthropic arm of online educational platform Assemble, announced it will launch Fall 2021, awarding up to $10,000 to two local public school programs and $20,000 to a local community changemaker, along with the logistical support and awareness necessary to create lasting positive change in disenfranchised Black and Brown communities.

School districts with more than 50 percent Black and/or Latinx students face a funding gap of more than $5,000 per pupil on average, according to The Century Foundation. The net assets of Black and Latino-led groups are 76% smaller than white-led organizations. BeGreat Together aims to bridge that gap and put resources in the hands of public schools and grassroots community changemakers who know best what their students and communities need.

BeGreat Together is calling upon Kansas City public schools to nominate an envisioned or existing service, initiative, or program that supports the educational environment or experience for students, to receive up to $10,000. BeGreat is also calling upon residents to nominate themselves or another local changemaker to be the recipient of a $20,000 grant.

Parents Improve Your Children's Reading Skills


Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.

Nominations are open:

The non-profit is looking for individual changemakers making a difference in Kansas City communities and public K-12 schools that have innovative program ideas for improving the educational experience and/or environment for students. These grants will bridge individuals to collectives and issues to answers, elevating effective Black-led and Latino-led community endeavors by uplifting existing local changemakers while investing in future leaders.

"Our work is starting in Kansas City, but we’re creating national change. Marginalization is interconnected: until the news that slavery was abolished reached the oppressed in Texas, slavery wasn't over. Until we’re all free, no one’s free. BeGreat Together breaks that cycle and bridges that gap. We’re putting resources directly into the hands of changemakers in marginalized communities because they’re the experts - they know how to uplift and support their own communities,” says Avrell Stokes, President of BeGreat Together.

Assemble is a new educational platform with courses from BIPOC innovators and leaders, launching on Black Friday. Tiffany Haddish, Jesse Williams, and many others have invested in the platform founded by Cortney Woodruff, Tez Bryant and Avrell Stokes.
