We are proud of the wonderful strides students in The Shadow Project are making to meet their academic and social goals. At Harrison Park in Southeast Portland, teacher Shannon Cooper’s 60 hard-working students are becoming enthusiastic readers and writers who enjoy school, turn in homework and take the opportunity to give to others. “Not only are my students developing a strong work ethic, they’re developing empathy and caring for each other,” says Shannon. “And they wanted to say thank you.” The Shadow Project is a Portland based nonprofit that supports special education classrooms in 28 schools, helping 1,300 bright and talented children discover their potential and turn “I can’t” into “I CAN!” You can change a child’s life today by supporting us through the Willamette Week Give!Guide (Click “Donate Now” and find us under “Education”)

I am proud of myself because I'm doing better in class and staying focused. I used to have a hard time with my attitude but I'm doing better now. I'm 13 and I have done the Shadow Project since I was six. The Shadow Project is wonderful. I hope to be like you guys and help kids out someday. Sincerely, Fredy
