By Jan Osborn, Dallas Doing Good

Since February 26, United to Learn (U2L), a Dallas-based nonprofit that partners with Dallas ISD elementary schools to accelerate student achievement and grow purposeful leaders, has been hosting its fifth annual citywide Community Campus Day events. So far, the organization has hosted three Saturday events in 2022 and the next Community Campus Day will be held this Saturday, April 9.

During these Community Campus Day Saturdays, United to Learn mobilizes community volunteers from companies, schools, and other organizations to improve campus cultures across 45 elementary schools. The remaining events will occur on April 9 and April 23.

This Saturday, United to Learn is hosting a rally at John Neely Bryan Elementary, where there will be student performances, music by DJ Elusive, activities, games and more. In addition to the rally, volunteers will be on-site to paint and update the teachers’ lounge.

Dallas Doing Good interviewed John Neely Bryan’s Principal Vickie Mitchell to learn more about her journey in education and the impact of United to Learn’s Community Campus Day.
