Creating a better future for children from low-income families takes hope. It also requires life guidance, academic support, personal accountability, and a commitment to stick by students from middle school through college graduation.
That’s the proven approach of Take Stock in Children (TSIC). For over 20 years, TSIC of Duval County has been changing the lives of deserving (or under-served) children by combining in-school support through a college success coach, the promise of a college or vocational school tuition scholarship and most importantly the guidance of a caring mentor.
With the help of our community partners and the dedication of our mentors, we have prepared more than a thousand students for a future that includes post-secondary education and higher earning potentials. Our scholars’ high school graduation rate is more than 60 percent higher than their at-risk peers.
