Charity of the Month: Golden Apple

The latest featured organization of our Charity of the Month program is Golden Apple. 

About Golden Apple:

Golden Apple is a non-profit organization that works to inspire, develop and support teacher and school leader excellence in Illinois, especially in schools-of-need.

Golden Apple firmly believes the critical contributor to student achievement is the quality of the teacher in the classroom. Providing exceptional preparation for teachers at all stages of their careers is what they stand for.

"We identify motivated future educators with diverse backgrounds and through our Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois program, provide advance teacher preparation and mentoring both during and after college to ensure their lasting success in challenging teaching environments."

Golden Apple's annually bestowed Golden Apple Awards for Excellence in Teaching & Leadership celebrates outstanding teachers and school leaders and invite those awarded the platform to further our mission. Our innovative programs build on one another to transform teachers and teaching, enriching student and teacher lives.
