To change the future of our community, we need to start with our youngest by setting them up for success from kindergarten to graduation and beyond.
Once in school, reading at grade level by the end of third grade is the single most important predictor of success. However, a lack of support, available resources and absences put children at risk for academic failure.
Having a mentor greatly increases a student's potential for success. In fact, children and youth who have mentors experience improved self-esteem, greater academic achievement, increased motivation in school and better lifestyle choices.

For most of her childhood, Chloe has struggled with learning disabilities that have caused her to fall almost three grades behind her peers.

We partner with local agencies focused specifically on the success of children and youth to foster lasting change where it matters most: where we live.View our Partners
