Members serve full time in schools across Western North Carolina to fill the gaps in public education. The children receive individual attention from the members which allows students the opportunities needed to thrive.
The students in the schools that members serve at are likely to be from low income families. Studies show that children from poverty are more likely to struggle with engagement in school. By increasing a student’s vocabulary, teaching important life skills such as organizing, note taking, and prioritizing, and by cultivating a positive attitude, members equip the child with tools necessary to succeed in not only their academic career, but also in their social lives.
