“I am glad that my Quest students have found something that they are passionate about and are completely running it,” said Allen. “I know these students have worked very hard on this project and I am excited to see all their hard work pay off.”
Quest for Real Life Success is an after school program that meets every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30pm. Quest was established to assist students in preparation for their future by assisting them to be proactive in the areas of academic preparation, financial education, business, personal health, technology/sciences, community awareness and earth preservation. Although currently in Pittsburgh, Will Allen, founder of the program, Skype's directly with the school to talk to the students about the weekly topic. For instance, speakers, such as the schools guidance counselors have spoken to the children about college preparation.
Allen created the Will Allen Foundation in 2008 as a means of giving back to his hometown of Dayton, Ohio and his NFL hometowns of Tampa and Pittsburgh. The foundation’s mission is to inspire youth to attain their personal best and to be an influential role model in the lives of families in Dayton, Tampa and Pittsburgh.
