Mission Statement

The mission of Take Stock in Children is to passionately promote personal worth, 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.

Description

Take Stock in Children is a comprehensive program that helps children from low-income families to succeed by providing volunteer mentors, case managers, early intervention and long-term support, parental involvement, and full tuition scholarships for college and vocational studies. It is not a band-aid approach, but a long-term strategy to make permanent, positive change on a community wide basis. The children who graduate our program are equipped to help themselves, and their families, throughout their adult lives. The program succeeds by collaborating with the Palm Beach County school districts, the Palm Beach County Sheriffs department, the STARS foundation, and volunteer mentors who dedicate one hour per week to our students throughout the school year.
