Annual Holiday Party at Paradise Cove

  • Catherine Meek, Executive Director with Officer Tang

Every year Paradise Cove Beach Cafe and Paradise Cove Land Company host a holiday party for our students.  The children had a fabulous time as always. This year over 200 students from 14 homeless shelters throughout Southern California were bussed in for a day of fun and great food.  The furthest being from Pomona and Garden Grove.

The California Highway Patrol provided the gifts for the kids and over 23 Explorers (their young volunteers) showed up to help out.
Santa arrived in a firetruck…
Thank you to everyone who made this possible and a special thank you to Bob Morris and all the staff at Paradise Cove Beach Cafe for making this a day to remember for our students!

Most Likely To Succeed – Documentary Screening & Conversation

Join us for 3 screenings of the documentary Most Likely To Succeed.

For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in todayʼs innovative world. Film Threat stated that “this film should be a required course for all parents and educators.” Most Likely To Succeed is an official selection of many of the nation’s top film festivals, including the prestigious 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.

HomeWalk 2015

On November 21, 2015, team School on Wheels participated in the United Way HomeWalk, a walk dedicated to eradicating homelessness in Los Angeles. This was our team’s second year participating and the turnout was outrageous!

As one of the largest groups, School on Wheels walked together with students, parents and volunteers in support of our organization and the fight to end homelessness. More than 300 supporters registered to walk with our team which is a record number for our organization!

We are very appreciative for everyone who supported us in this year’s walk and contributed their effort to make this a memorable event. Thank you all!

We have some more photos from the event on our Facebook page too!
