League of Extraordinary Students


Anna Chapman, LOES member from
Putnam County High School

Ferst Foundation’s League of Extraordinary Students was created as a way for young adults (college, high school, middle school & elementary) to engage in the spirit of philanthropy and become inspired to make a difference in their own community.

Gain valuable volunteer experience while making a difference in your community by helping to improve early literacy outcomes!

Extracurricular Benefit
Many school programs require an element of volunteer service as a condition of membership or as part of a course requirement:

  • AP
  • IB
  • National Honor Society
  • Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts

Many colleges look at high school resumes as part of their application process, and volunteer service is considered a real plus! Becoming part of the League of Extraordinary Students is a great way for a student to fulfill his/her volunteer service obligation.

The Program
Students wishing to join the elite ranks of the League of Extraordinary Students will, over the course of their service:

  • Raise the funds to register one (or more) child(ren) in the FFCL program to receive free books and literacy support material for the family until he/she turns 5 years ($200 per child).
  • Perform 10 hours of literacy-related community service.

To participate in the program, or for more information, register below to get started.

Participating Student/Student Organization will:

  • Receive a Certificate of Appreciation signed by Ferst Foundation Founder, Robin Ferst.
  • Be listed as a Ferst Foundation League Member by name and county on our website.
  • Have a press release detailing your accomplishment sent by FFCL to your local newspaper.
