Wishbone.org is a new non-profit connecting at-risk high school students to donors online to fund after school and summer programs. For students, Wishbone provides access to out-of-school programs that build confidence, a skill set, and the realization that succeeding in high school is relevant to pursuing their passions. For donors, Wishbone bridges the gap within a community by connecting donors to local students who share a common interest. As a Teach For America corps member, Beth Schmidt ran a test model to prove that her tenth graders in South Central, Los Angeles were empowered to pull themselves out of their own circumstances, when given the opportunity to do so. Out of this test model, Wishbone.org was born. Beth is a Connecticut native who currently calls San Francisco home. She attended The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Conn. and Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vt.
