Take Stock in Children
Take Stock in Children is a statewide, academically focused mentoring program that guides students toward successful completion of high school and college enrollment. Take Stock in Children empowers students from households with low incomes, many of whom are on track to be the first in their families to graduate from high school, to overcome the barriers to higher education that they face. Champions For Learning has been an affiliate of Take Stock in Children program since 2000.
This multi-year program model integrates elements of highly effective college and career access programming, including mentorship, college and career access workshops, one-on-one college and career coaching, and scholarships. Recruitment and onboarding for the program begins in the second semester of 8th grade. During onboarding, students are paired with their Champions For Learning mentor that they will meet with for the next four years. Students must remain in the program throughout high school until graduation to earn a scholarship award. By setting high expectations for their academic future, Take Stock in Children helps students graduate from high school in strong academic standing and prepared for postsecondary success.
