The Take Stock in Children (TSIC) program provides mentors, advocates, and donors opportunities to break the cycle of poverty through education. TSIC is an effective solution to a serious problem facing every community in Florida and has been proven successful in bettering the lives of disadvantaged youth. Investing in post-secondary preparedness for deserving low-income and at-risk students ensures we are developing more college graduates, community leaders, and entrepreneurs.
The Broward County program has awarded over 1,140 students with $12 million in scholarships since 1998. The program has over 300 volunteer mentors who meet with the students 30-60 minutes every week at Broward Schools. Mentors give the support and guidance to our students so that they can build productive and meaningful lives. Their encouragement and support has a tremendous impact!
Please know that your donation to Take Stock in Children of Broward will give a child in your community the promise of a post-secondary tuition scholarship, the guidance of a caring mentor, and a sustainable outcome of success.
