What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

RAX Worldwide is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit actively fundraising for the launch of a phenomenal scholastic endeavor - Expansion League Virtual Academy (ELVA) for students 6th-12th grade. Through this all-virtual academic program students will work through a challenging self-paced technical and business curriculum with real-world projects exposing them to resources that prepare them to be job creators, economic expanders and professional networkers. Students will have a 9-month comprehensive lesson plan that also covers enrichment topics such as health, nutrition and social and emotional well-being. It is the goal of this academy to challenge each student to be their very best, seek out answers, to reflect on decisions and to peak their interest in content that can lead to entrepreneurial creativity, greater learning and understanding, or innovative change.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

X Block Expungement Program

Our Expungement Services are currently offered to individuals who have been criminally convicted  in the state of Louisiana, for crimes that are in need of expunging.  

We do not expunge records for free.  Rather, our organization facilitates the expungement process by providing important information and alternative resources for future assistance, along with sponsoring and hosting events throughout the state that bring lawyers together with those who have criminal records so that they can obtain free legal advice or counsel going forward.


X Block Expungment Services offers this service as a way limiting complications for individuals who may fill out applications themselves and forfeit funds for inadequate information.  All information provided to us and the lawyers is strictly confidential and is not given to any third party or special interest groups.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Assist students in grades 6th - 12th with education in major areas such as coding, robotics and mechanical engineering along with learning fundamentals for business by acquiring an acumen for finances, accounting, investing and more.

Challenge each student to be their very best, seek out answers, reflect on decisions and to peak their interest in content that can lead to entrepreneurial creativity, greater learning and understanding, and/or positive innovative change.

Enable students to make sound business decisions and be leaders in job creation, economic expansion and professional networking.

X Block Expungement Services: We are able to meet our goals effectively by hosting expungement events and sometimes partnering with local cities, in various cities, statewide to assist those who have a record.

Expansion League: We are able to meet our goals through fundraisers, donations, volunteerism, rapport, emails and making hard calls to businesses.

All of our programs are maintained through grants, donations, and volunteers.

So far we are receiving donations for the virtual academy which will go towards the creation of a free education site for youth who are signing up from 6th through 12th grade.

We have created a portal to accept donations and have fundraising forms on the site.

We are already in the process of receiving mailed-in checks from companies who are in support of what we are doing.

We are in the works on an educational site for the youth 6th-12th grade that provides them with the opportunity to have an amazing educational journey and experience in the State of Louisiana.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
