Brevard Schools Foundation Take Stock in Children Program Needs 10 Mentors
The Brevard Schools Foundation Take Stock in Children (TSIC) program is actively seeking 10 new mentors to serve middle and high school students in the South Brevard area (Eau Gallie, Melbourne and Palm Bay).
Take Stock in Children is a unique dropout prevention, college readiness and mentoring program that provides the opportunity for aspiring low-income Brevard County public school students (in grades 7-9) to earn a college scholarship. Students are matched with a volunteer mentor, and must commit to remain drug and crime-free, maintain a 2.5 GPA and pass mandatory state tests.
Mentors are caring adults with “more to give.” Mentors meet with students once a week and provide the needed encouragement, guidance and support to help students realize the dream of a college education. All mentoring takes place at school, during school hours. Upon completion of high school and TSIC program requirements, students will receive a 60 credit hour tuition scholarship to attend a Florida Prepaid approved university or state college.
