Take Stock in Children
October 19, 2009

Almost since it's inception I have been involved with TAke Stock in Children(TSIC). First as a reviewer of the hundreds of kids from South Florida WAGES who applied to the scholarship, as an advocate, as a presenter and finally as a liaison between TSIC and Miami Dade County Public Schools resources. Take Stock to me is the most holistic program in existance at this moment. The program’s advocates arduously work with the students from the moment the join the program until they graduate. Each child has a mentor that is in regularly in contact with the advocates , teacher and student. This alone is of significant importance in the lives of our students that lack role models and for the most part come from single households. Take Stock in Children has given Dade County hundred of thousands of dollars in scholarships for minority kids in Dade County. I do not know of any other program that takes on the role of mother, father, teacher, family with our kids and teachers them character education along the way. I am proud of having being a mentor and a volunteer as well in this program; it truly changes one life at a time. Thank you Take Stock and Thank you to you, all the organizations that contribute to the greatness of this program.
