Our mentoring programs provide assistance to hundreds of students annually by matching them with trained mentors.  The Okaloosa Foundation’s Take Stock in Children Program has shown great results with a high school graduation rate of 94% with 98% of those students entering college with the guidance of 86 mentors from the local community.  In 2014 alone, the Foundation provided over $15,000 in mini-grant funding for increased student and teachers achievement.

The Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation, Inc. and Take Stock in Children (TSIC) were recently recognized with a coveted Excellence Award for successfully providing at-risk youth with caring volunteer mentors, college readiness curriculum, and college scholarships.
