CHANGING THE GAME, EMPOWERING OUR CHILDREN & COMMUNITIES FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION
From chronic exposure to varying levels of violence, substance abuse, family erosion, cultural discrimination, employment instability, chronic diseases, crime, suicide, incarceration, and reduced access to quality education and treatment - children in rural and low-income communities are forced to normalize an overwhelming number of traumatic stressors, and often endure a lifetime of associated hardships due to inadequate support. Raised in rural South Carolina, Neka Alston, Founder of Beyond Now Foundation, experienced each of these childhood traumas and the associated burdens that traveled along with her into every stage of life.
In partnership with parents and schools, the goal of Beyond Now Foundation is to encourage a love of learning, inspire compassionate communities, and to advocate for innovative pathways that equip marginalized students with "REAL" opportunities for long-term success.
The mission of Beyond Now Foundation is twofold: first to advance equity and diversity in early childhood education, and secondly to provide community-based outreach that encourages public support for rural and underserved families and schools.
Faith, family, and culture are the cornerstone of the rural-community structure. Despite persisting adversities, profoundly deep roots of resilience have passed on hope from generation-to-generation.
In collaboration with schools, families, and partners, we will achieve extraordinary heights and build resilience in underserved communities in new and innovative ways.
Beyond Now Foundation envisions a world in which every student has the support needed to reach their full potential, and provided real opportunities for future success.
We strive to help rural and underserved student populations strengthen their learning skills and to inspire supportive partnerships that improve conditions for marginalized and underserved communities.
