Take Stock in Children

I mentor a young lady named Sarah. Sarah comes from a single parent home with that parent being disabled. I have watched Sarah flourish through the years. She is an excellent student and does much of the care-taking of her mother. She is an honor student and has dreams--the scholarship will provide the opportunity for this student to rise a level above her parents and family situation. The talks that we share have built a relationship in which she can share concerns and I can provide guidance and encouragement.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...the regular ongoing meetings that I have with my student. She will have an opportunity in life that no one else in her family ever has had.

More feedback

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...offer even more scholarships to needy students

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I mentor a student who will receive a full scholarship if she stays on track. I meet with her almost every week to offer encouragement and to share her successes.
