Scholarships, Mentors and Hope
The mission of Take Stock in Children is to passionately promote personal growth, self-responsibility, and academic success for deserving low-income children by providing a unique set of resources including mentors, scholarships, long-term support, student advocacy, and a guaranteed educational opportunity.
We believe that a willing child can succeed with the help of passionate and caring people, encouragement and challenge, hard work, and accountability. Our purpose is to prepare and develop confidence, competence, pride, and a sense of belonging, and hope in each student. Achieving this goal will result in an improved quality of life for all stockholders.
RESULTS: Take Stock in Children has a 92% success rate in keeping students in school and on track for high school graduation.
Take Stock in Children is a unique mentoring program that provides low-income students with a caring mentor, a tuition scholarship and the support of a skilled Student Advocate.
Enrolled between 6th - 9th grades (and committed through graduation) students make a commitment to do well in school, stay drug and crime free and maintain good behavior and attendance. Mentors meet with their student for 30 minutes at school, once a week for the school year.
