N.E.B. School Uniforms for Success Corporation (NEBSUSC) was established in 2012 as a 501c3 organization, whose mission is to assist low income families in need of school uniforms and shoes. In South Florida, children who attend the public school system are required to wear school uniforms. Our goal is to give students an opportunity to be a part of the learning environment by providing uniforms and shoes.
Education is an important factor in overcoming poverty and NEBSUSC is committed to giving students a chance at changing their world through education. In 1988, a scientific school uniform research study concluded,-that students who wore school uniforms on an average scored slightly higher on standardized test. We feel wearing school uniforms will help students focus on education rather than appearance; it minimize peer pressure and allow students to focus on attaining an education.
Our organization form partnerships with community action agencies, family services, local schools, and churches. NEBSUSC enhances these organizations by partnering with them to better serve our communities.
Families seek out these agencies for various assistance when experiencing difficult economic circumstances. When in need of school uniforms and shoes, the referring school/agency will complete a Student Uniform Application and forward to NEBSUSC.
We are a non-profit organization who provides uniforms and shoes throughout the school year, – through referrals by our partners. NEBSUSC’s goal is to provide a sufficient quantity of uniforms and shoes, to allow students to enter the learning environment in the proper attire. This is a goal that we are committed to fulfill, and hope that we can count on your help to give these children the opportunity to have access to the educational system. It takes a village to do their part to help educate a child.
