Take Stock in Children pairs mentors with at-risk school kids and helps them turn conversations like 'if I go to college,' to 'when I go to college.'
Children in middle and high school enrolled in Take Stock in Children have a graduation rate that is 61 percent higher than their at-risk peers.
The program needs more mentors, especially men. Our own Heather Crawford and Anthony Austin are part of the program and encourage you to look into the program too.
