Give Something Back
Changing lives, families, and communities —
one student at a time.
Helping Students Who Need it Most
Give Back helps students who face significant financial challenges and those who have experienced barriers to success such as foster care, homelessness, or the incarceration of a parent. We are empowering these students to build resilience, overcome adversity, and find pathways to become self-reliant adults and leaders of their communities.
Giving Back since 2003
A Model for Success. A Promise for Tomorrow.
Give Back Scholars participate in programming and receive coaching throughout high school to prepare them for an education and a career. We help students explore different career opportunities and get hands-on experience while in high school. Our Scholars build a career-based educational plan and we help them get the post-secondary education they will need to be successful in that career.
Our curriculum focuses on life skills to help make the transition to independent living.
Coaches work to help students make a plan and to stay on track.
Students learn about dozens of different careers and explore those that interest them.
We help place students in education programs and work experiences to help them learn what it takes to be successful in a career.
