In partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Panda Express, we held a ribbon cutting for our newest Panda Cares Center of Hope at our Grand Prairie Club on January 29.
The opening of this Center of Hope aligns directly with Panda Express’ commitment to foster academic success among Boys & Girls Clubs members across the country.
Additionally, Panda Cares awarded the Grand Prairie Club with $10K to be used towards academic scholarships for its high school seniors.
Panda Cares Center of Hope is a newly renovated space within our Club designed to deliver more joy, education, and critical social-emotional development to local communities.
Project Learn, the platform that unites each Center of Hope, is a holistic strategy intended to reinforce and enhance what youth learn during the school day while creating experiences that invite them to fall in love with learning.
Rooted in social-emotional development, this program is based on research showing that students do better in school when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun and academically beneficial activities.
Our Panda Cares Center of Hope was designed to meet the needs of our Club members and includes a smart board, comfortable lounge pods, iPads, dry erase tables and more.
