Hey Monique,  

Regarding offering education to kids or even school programs; recently CG Cookie has started up an outreach program that may be a good fit to help out, or align some content to help get the kids up to speed with Blender with curated learning flows or custom sponsorship. 

Would be happy to help out where we could or if not us, at least point you in the right direction.

>> Dear All,
>> Our England based 3D animation summer school, 3Dami <http://3dami.org/>, has finished. We had 44 students aged 13 - 18 working in mini film studios for 7 days and creating 5 films.  All work that you see is theirs (except for some textures and the sound.) Only one student had any formal training. We've been partnering with Universities and managed to get a 500 node render farm at UCL and a 177 node render farm in Bath
