Jalen Rose Leadership Academy/Operation Graduation – JRLA Online Auction
Auction Ends: Aug 29, 2016 07:00 PM EDT

Online Auction Open... Let the Bidding Begin!

All students do not have equal access to a quality education. Despite major strides toward educational equity, our country still faces an opportunity gap. An education should not be defined by socioeconomic background, abilities, or zip code!  That is why Jalen founded the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy - an open enrollment, tuition free, public charter high school in his hometown of Detroit. 

Focused on a 9-16 model, we are on a mission to not only graduate our scholars from high school, but college as well - outcomes that are real game changers in urban education.  We are off to a very strong start having graduated more than 90% of our scholars and sending more than 90% off to college, technical school or the military.  However, we know we have more work to do.  

All children should have the opportunity to achieve at a high level, which starts with a great education. JRLA is meeting that need; however, funding a public charter high school is not an easy task.  Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools do not receive funding to purchase, lease, or improve facilities. This causes financial challenges that can limit the charter school’s ability to provide appropriate accommodations.  To financially support both the transformational educational opportunities for our students, and to provide the necessary facilities to house these unique programs, we are hosting this online auction.

The JRLA Online Auction is now open and will run from now until August 29, 2016 @ 7pm ET (conclusion of annual golf outing).  Auction items range from once in a lifetime experiences to autographed memorabilia and various items guaranteed to delight and surprise. So, tell your friends, family, community.
