Wheels for Education Latest News

Overview

We Love Our Kids

 

Our Beginning

In 2011, LeBron became the face of the State Farm 26 Second Campaign which targets the national dropout issue.

What started out as the Bikeathon has evolved into the Wheels for Education program with a focus on LeBron’s hometown, directly reflecting his passion for philanthropy and education.

Our Program

Wheels for Education (WFE) is more than a program, it’s a commitment. Each year, LeBron and his Foundation select a group of third grade students to be a part of WFE. WFE students begin each year with a two-week technology camp offered by Akron After School (AAS) in partnership with the Foundation.

Throughout the school year, the WFE students receive support, encouragement and incentives; these interventions will continue throughout their journeys to graduation.

330 Ambassadors: Delta Class

330 Ambassadors

The 330 Ambassadors are a select group of students from the Akron area selected each year by the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools. These students serve as role models for our Wheels for Education Kids. Together the 330 Ambassadors, the Akron Public Schools and the LeBron James Family Foundation work to execute Wheels for Education program initiatives. The primary purpose of the 330 Ambassadors is to serve as an extension of LeBron while he is away from home traveling for work.
