Rubin for Kids is a nonprofit devoted to recognizing and rewarding the achievement of personal goals at school, at home, or in the community. In this sense, the program is both achievement-centered, and need-based. We distribute Post High School Scholarships and Youth Achievement Awards to youth and young adults in Dane County, WI. Not only are we a 100% volunteer based organization but since there are almost no administrative costs, every dollar contributed goes to help a deserving area youth.
Join us and help make a difference in the lives of Madison kids!!!
This Month's Spotlight - Scholar
BESIDES GOING TO SCHOOL, WHAT DO YOU DO?
Besides going to school, I work at Walmart and I’m involved in a program at the Madison Police Department called “Post 911”.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE GOALS AND DREAMS?
One day I hope to become a Police Officer.
HOW HAS RUBIN FOR KIDS HELPED YOU MOVE CLOSER TO ACHIEVING OUR DREAMS AND GOALS?
Rubin for Kids helped me by providing a scholarship for college.
HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE BE DIFFERENT IF RUBIN FOR KIDS WERE NEVER A PART OF IT?
If Rubin were never in my life, I would not be able to afford college for my own.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK AND / OR SCHOOL?
The favorite thing to do outside of work and school is attending the “Post 911” program because I learn new things, things that will help me react calm in challenging situations.
HOW WOULD YOU ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS AND GOALS?
I would encourage others to do whatever your passionate about, look for opportunities yourself because no one will help if you don’t ask and never give up. Great things take time.
