Who We Are

Transforming Florida
ONE STUDENT AT A TIME.

Take Stock in Children, Inc. is a nonprofit mentoring, college success, and college scholarship organization dedicated to transforming Florida one student at a time. Working statewide throughout Florida, our mission is to break the cycle of poverty for low-income, underrepresented, academically qualified students by providing opportunities for degree attainment through postsecondary education. We provide wraparound services to students through an innovative mutli-year model from middle school through postsecondary completion.

Our History

Take Stock in Children was founded in 1995 to combat a troubling and persistent dropout rate that plagued the public school system. With the backing of concerned education, community, and business leaders, Take Stock sought to give high-potential, low-income underrepresented students the resources they needed to graduate from high school, go to college, achieve degree attainment, and succeed in college, career, and life. From the outset, Take Stock in Children was looking to be transformative.
