At the Standard Hotel Beer Garden, Keith Mann held a special event for the benefit of his favorite charity. Keith Mann is the CEO of Dynamics Search Partners, and the event was held to benefit Uncommon Schools, a charity that benefits local high school students. Keith invited members of the financial services community, and together they managed to raise $22,000 in one evening. The money will be used to sponsor students who need financial assistance for taking college entrance exams.
Uncommon Schools exists to help students from low-income families achieve the dream of going to college. There are millions of students who have difficulty affording SAT and AP testing exams. These exams are necessary for standing out when applying to colleges. With the funding provided by Keith, Uncommon Schools will be able to pay for the exams of hundreds of students. Keith supports Uncommon Schools in its mission of helping everyone go to college.
Uncommon Schools is working to open new schools to help more students get a quality education. For 2 new locations in New York and Brooklyn, all student testing will be free. Students will be taking the PSAT and AP tests this year. In previous years, Dynamics Search Partners has funded students in the New York City area because it has an enduring commitment to serving the local community. The partnership between Dynamics Search Partners and Uncommon Schools began in 2013. Keith Mann wanted to create a meaningful platform where he could assist students with the skills they need to thrive later in life. Keith believes that students need both tactical and practical skills to succeed in college and the workplace. He is a proud supporter of academic excellence at the high school level, and he is eager to continue to be of service to his community for a long time.
Keith has taken a tour of some of the high schools that his fundraiser benefits. He was excited to see how the program was helping students. He met with both students and teachers. Keith commented that he felt deeply inspired to see the motivation the students had to improve their lives through education.
