Growth Circles is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives benefitting the middle school students of Bayside MLK School in Marin City, California.

Thank you for sending the middle schoolers of Bayside MLK School in Marin City to New York City for spring break 2019! Led by fabulous teacher Mr. Edney and school administrative assistant Mr. Julius, they were amazed by what they learned from careers in high finance at the New York Stock Exchange to pathways to performing arts careers at Juilliard. They saw Amateur Night at the Apollo in Harlem, Frozen on Broadway, and sightseeing highlights including the Statue of Liberty, the top of the Empire State Building, the MET, and the American Museum of Natural History. The trip gave several of our students their first opportunity to travel by airplane. Thank you for making it possible for our students to embark on this educational adventure!

During COVID, we are supporting local efforts to provide educational enrichment to our middle schoolers until it is safe for us to return to Washington, D.C. We look forward to expanding our next trip to include high school students who missed the opportunity to travel as middle school students in 2020-2021.
