Did you know many children in Central Texas do not have access to high-quality learning and enrichment to keep their hard-earned academic skills sharp after school and during the summer?
Alexis Davis, Austin resident and social media manager for CORT, has been actively involved in making a difference in the lives of children through the Andy Roddick Foundation (ARF) since 2016. As someone who attended afterschool programs at the Boys and Girls Club in grade school, Alexis understands the need and importance of programs like those the Foundation provides.
“I know firsthand the positive impact a program like this one can make,” said Davis. “Without quality learning and enrichment beyond the classroom, children are more at risk for falling behind in core subjects like math and reading, leaving opportunities for missing those eye-opening moments when they discover something they do well.”
Today, Alexis uses her professional skills and experience to make a difference in children’s lives. She remotely manages ARF’s social media channels and shares live content during Foundation events, including the annual spring luncheon, six-week Summer Learning Program and, in years past, the fall gala. She is also an active member of the Leadership Council, which raises awareness, drives involvement and promotes support of the Foundation to provide at-risk youth the access and resources needed to stay engaged when school is out of session.
