Bright Futures helps students achieve success by matching student needs with resources through partnerships between the schools and the community utilizing social media. Through the Bright Futures’ framework, the District acts as a liaison between needy students and community organizations. According to Jen Gomez, director of student services and equity education for the Sioux City Community School District, Bright Futures has many benefits. “In addition to meeting any child’s basic needs within 24 hours, our program also is building community leadership capacity to improve problem solving capabilities to address the greater challenges faced by today’s youth.”
