Now more than ever we must
Take Stock in Children
We are the Broward County affiliate of a statewide Florida non-profit organization that provides a unique opportunity for low-income and at-risk students to escape the cycle of poverty through education. We offer our students caring volunteer mentors, student advocacy, college readiness, and college scholarships. Our comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school, and include post-secondary retention and completion services.
Each child is matched with a caring adult mentor who meets with the student at his/her school for an hour each week. Mentors provide academic and behavioral motivation, guidance, friendship, support and are encouraged to continue their service over a multi-year period with their Take Stock in Children student.
College and career coaching
Each child in the program is assigned a student advocate/case manager who meets with the student and provides assistance and program support to ensure his or her academic success. Student advocates work closely with mentors and school personnel to confirm that each child is achieving continued success.
Each child who successfully fulfills the requirements of Take Stock in Children receives a fully paid college tuition scholarship. Students who prefer post-secondary vocational training may select a vocational education option or a course of study at a community college leading to a two-year technical degree.
Changing lives through scholarships, mentors, & hope
