Mentors Needed for Student Critique Room! – NCECA Blog 

 

 

Take Stock in Children provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students to escape the cycle of poverty through education. We offer our students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life. Our comprehensive services continue through high school and include their transition into college.

 

Our program is based on the principal that given extensive support, motivation and accountability, children will work hard to ensure that they graduate from high school and attain a postsecondary degree. We fund our college scholarships and student services through a unique public-private fund raising model, and our mentors generously volunteer their mentoring services to our students.

 

“Our Take Stock in Children program offers the promise of a college tuition plan to our students if they successfully meet regularly with their mentor and meet all program requirements." 

 

The Take Stock in Children program provides mentors, staff support, and guidance to ensure that the students—many of whom are the first in their families to attend college—are prepared for the rigors of college coursework. Take Stock in Children scholars are required to maintain good grades, exhibit exemplary behavior, and remain drug-and crime-free.

 

The most important component of Take Stock is mentoring. Every student is matched with an adult mentor who will serve as a friend to the student throughout the school year.  The Foundation welcomes mentor volunteers at any time. You can learn more about the mentor program by visiting our mentoring page on this site and apply online. Interested community members may also contact our office at 850-767-4111 or email at bayedfoundation@bay.k12.fl.us .
