Take Stock in Children Program

Take Stock in Children is a comprehensive program that helps at-risk, low-income children succeed by providing college scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advocates/case managers, early intervention, and long-term support. High standards, parental involvement, and community support are crucial to the program's success.

Take Stock in Children Supports Students

The Indian River State College Foundation is the lead agency for Indian River, Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties. In the past 20 years, the IRSC Foundation has changed the lives of more than 915 young people along the Treasure Coast. Partnerships with local school districts, the Florida Prepaid Foundation, and countless businesses and individuals have led to tremendous success.

Support a Scholarship

The lives of at-risk children are being transformed by the opportunity of an education through the Take Stock in Children program. Community support is vital to the continuation of this highly successful program.

Become a Mentor

Give a little time, get a lot in return. It only takes a few hours a month to make a huge difference in the life of a child. Mentoring helps keep kids off drugs, out of gangs, and in school so they can fulfill their dreams. And the best part is that you’ll not only see what it does for them, you’ll feel what it does for you.
