Welcome to Volusia County Take Stock In Children!

Take Stock in Children offers its students college tuition scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life.  FUTURES/Take Stock in Children raises funds for these scholarships through individual, community, civic and private donations. All contributions currently are matched 100% with dollars from the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program.  Students selected into the program must maintain a 3.0 weighted cumulative GPA throughout high school, attend required events and meet with a mentor at school for 30 minutes weekly during the school year. They must also remain alcohol, crime, drug and gang free.

Take Stock in Children has a proven state-wide record with assisting ambitious, goal oriented students to graduate from high school, attend college and become productive citizens in our community.

In Volusia County, our students are nominated by their guidance counselor while in the 8th grade. If selected, the students attend a contract signing ceremony pledging to remain alcohol, crime, drug and gang free, maintain a weighted cumulative 3.0 GPA and meet with a mentor weekly throughout their high school years.
