Basic School Program

Jamaica’s progress is our passion, and so education is the main focus of our work at the Gore Family Foundation. The Gore Family Foundation’s IT Playmates use technology and interactive media toys as tools to engage children in our basic schools. They also use low-cost toys made of recyclable material to interact with children in our Reach up & Learn Program.

SECOND STEP

The Gore Family Foundation’s IT Playmates complete Second Step: Skills for Social and Academic Success training, which gives them the tools to help kids in our Basic Schools control their impulses, stay focused, and follow rules. The Second Step Program promotes the teaching of life skills that strengthen our children’s ability to learn, have empathy, manage emotions and solve problems.
