School Success

Team School Success works to support and further the academic and personal development of students in grades K-12, to eliminate barriers to their achievement and to help prepare them for life success.

AventWest Children’s Mentoring (AWCM)
AventWest Children’s Mentoring (AWCM) is an after-school tutoring program for academically at-risk students living in the AventWest Community in southwest Raleigh. Here, children in kindergarten through fifth grade who are referred to this program by their schools, find a safe environment to play and interact with volunteers who truly care about their well-being. AWCM helps students become self-sufficient and improves their self-confidence by enhancing their reading, math, language and writing skills.

Brentwood Boys & Girls Club
At BGC, we inspire and empower elementary and middle school children through special events hosted in collaboration with Club staff and the community. The Boys & Girls Clubs’ mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.

Heritage Park
At Heritage Park we work closely with the staff of two Wake County nonprofits: Communities in Schools (CIS) of Wake County and Read and Feed. CIS Wake County has partnered with the Wake County Public Schools System for more than two decades to help remove the barriers that put students at risk of wasting their potential. Its mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. The mission of Read and Feed is to give low-income elementary school children an appetite for reading by strengthening literacy skills and providing encouragement in a nurturing, neighborhood environment. Some 30 percent of Wake public school third-graders do not read on grade level.

Note in the Pocket
The purpose of Note in the Pocket is to provide clothing to impoverished and homeless school children in Wake County with dignity and love.
