Take Stock In Children Now Raising Scholarship Funds

Published: Monday, March 11, 2013 at 10:45 AM.

What sets the TSIC program apart from other scholarship programs is the age range for qualification, the appointment of an adult mentor to coordinate with the student on a frequent basis throughout the school year, the written contract with the student to maintain average or above grades, stay away from drugs and alcohol, and generally be a good citizen and active in school and community events outside the classroom.  

There is a need for additional student adult mentors who work directly with the students, and for additional student advocates who are the liaison between Take Stock and the local schools and guidance counselors.  Other volunteer opportunities are available to serve on the Leadership Council that guides the total program or in fund raising.  The Washington County Take Stock In Children program is locally run and locally funded and there is always work for willing hands, with all funds donated going directly to scholarships.
