We aim to keep teens in school through special incentive and mentoring programs established to assist those students in grades 7-12, as well as food and clothing initiatives which are open to the community as a whole. We offer educational workshops for teens, young adults, and the general public, in an attempt to promote education in Martinsville and surrounding cities.
American 102 exists for the purpose of developing and implementing programs that will successfully assist schools in the prevention of middle and high school dropouts and help many students who might not have otherwise remained in school, to complete their high school education. Identifying drop-out factors and establishing necessary components to deter the decision to leave school sans diploma is a major aspect of what we hope to execute and implement as we grow and progress. We believe that every student is worth the cost of educating. We seek to partner with schools, educators, civic/community leaders, businesses, churches, parents & students, to attain the best possible outcome in preventing middle and high school dropouts.
American 102 Youth Foundation is a 501(c)(3) established to help prevent middle and high school student dropout through special incentive and mentoring programs created to assist students (grades 7-12), is chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a legal nonprofit corporation. The Foundation maintains an active panel of officers and a highly qualified Board of Directors that meet regularly to evaluate the overall functions and success of the programs in order to improve the effectiveness of programs to reach desired results. Our foundation is named after the American Furniture plant in Martinsville that was in business 102 years prior to burning down, paying homage to a company that helped build Martinsville.
