COLORADO SPRINGS COLO. (KRDO). Just before the 2022 schoolyear, Rocky Mountain McDonald’s’s owner and operations helped improve the learning environment of K-12 teachers by allowing educators the opportunity to apply for the $2,000 grant ‘One Class At a Time’.
The press release emphasizes that McDonald’s owners and operators are local residents who use local suppliers whenever possible to support their local economy. There are approximately 40 local franchises. “One Class at A Time” was founded with the idea of “the desire to help those who are most in need.”
Many classrooms, especially in the wake of the pandemics, lack the resources necessary to provide educational experiences that are relevant and effective. Local McDonalds owners are excited to launch this program, and help improve educational opportunities where they are most needed.
The Rocky Mountain McDonald’s offers an education program called “Archways of Opportunity” that is free. This program provides educational resources and other initiatives for free. McDonald’s offers tuition assistance to employees and students in college. In addition, McDonald’s gives away a high school diploma to all franchisees.
K-12 educations may apply for the grant through Rocky Mountain McDonald’s: “One Class at a time” website.
