Need in Deed

For the first time this year, ACHIEVEability Senior Coach Harold Barrow participated in Need in Deed, an organization connecting the classroom with the community. On Wednesday, February 1, 2016, Harold provided his expertise on homelessness and poverty by speaking to a classroom of more than 30 fifth grade students at General George McCall Elementary School in Philadelphia's Washington Square neighborhood. The students were enthralled by Harold's presentation and said that he was the best speaker they've heard!


Need in Deed works with over 80 public school teachers around Philadelphia, helping to bring real world learning and resources to their students about social issues selected by the students. ACHIEVEability and Harold Barrow are proud to support such a great program and classroom.
