HOUSTON - Jan. 7, 2020 - PRLog -- The National Pay It Forward Challenge for Education is set to launch on January 20 to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through a national challenge that provides hope, inspiration, and support to our students.
To learn more about the campaign, take a look at the video.
To kick off the year, Natalia Peart, Ph.D., founder of the Pay It Forward Education, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is challenging everyone on January 20th, Dr. King's National Day of Service to create a short video or post on social media, share their favorite Dr. King quote, and then Pay it Forward by offering a piece of advice that can help students succeed. Participants are encouraged to use #PayItForwardChallenge to post on their favorite social media platform - Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Dr. Peart is encouraging everyone to tag their friends and share the posts, too. She's hoping this is the beginning of a national call to action on behalf of our students that lasts throughout the rest of the school year.
"All kids need a good education to succeed in our world today," says Dr. Peart, a nationally acclaimed author and psychologist "But our system, from elementary school all the way to college is in crisis. So, they need us now more than ever. The purpose of the Pay it Forward Challenge is to pay tribute to Dr. King, as well as bring awareness to the continued challenges our students face, and how critical it is that we support them."
Dr. Natalia Peart is a psychologist, a business and educational consultant who has spent more than 25 years helping students, people and organizations achieve success. She has served on the Federal Reserve Board, 10th District, is a Forbes contributor, and has been featured in various media outlets including Harvard Business Review, Wall St. Journal, Oprah Magazine, and Black Enterprise. She is the founder of Pay it Forward Education, a 501(c)3 societal benefit organization that brings together students, families, educators, interested adults, and organizations to support student preparedness for the 21st century and to expand opportunity for all students.
