Mission Statement

Take Stock in Children offers a college tuition scholarship for low-income, at risk students that successfully complete the program. We are a Mentoring program providing students with access to a caring volunteer Mentor, a professional College Success Coach, and College Readiness support. Upon successful completion and participation in the TSIC program, students earn a Florida Prepaid College Foundation scholarship. A Mentor will meet with their student once weekly for 30 minutes. The Mentor will give support and advice to encourage good grades, to remain free of drugs, alcohol and crime, encourage positive behaviors and meet with their Mentor on a regular basis.

Description

Take Stock in Children is a non-profit foundation with Charlotte Local Education Foundation in Charlotte County. CLEF assists in securing scholarships through the Florida Prepaid Foundation for children who have multiple risk factors, or may not have the affordable means for College entrance.
