Become a Take Stock In Children Mentor!
Change a life over lunch!
Take Stock in Children (TSIC) is seeking volunteer mentors for students at DeLand High School, Deltona High School and University High School. TSIC is a statewide scholarship and mentoring program facilitated locally through FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools. TSIC students are paired with a mentor who meets with them for 30 minutes each week on a school campus. FUTURES’ TSIC scholars must maintain a weighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 and maintain good citizenship (no drug, alcohol, crime or gang activity). Upon achieving these goals and graduating high school, they are awarded a Florida Prepaid college tuition scholarship.
