January is National Mentoring Month, and although we celebrate our mentors year round this is the awareness that is needed to take our youth from dreaming of a higher education to the reality of sitting in a university lecture hall. In honor of our mentors we will be hosting a Happy Hour Fundraiser & Volunteer Drive for Take Stock in Children on Friday, January 25, 2013 at Blue Martini Brickell - 900 South Miami 2nd Floor Ave. Miami, FL. 33131. The event time is from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM and attendees must be 21 and older to enter with a valid ID. The dress code is business casual and strictly enforced. Hats or open toed sandle shoes are not permitted. The purpose of this event is to recruit volunteer mentors, raise money and awareness about Take Stock in Children, while celebrating the ones who answered the call to action, our caring volunteer mentors. TSIC has partnered for this event with local mentoring programs, local organizations and companies with the same goal in mind of mentoring to increase awareness about the needs of our children. Our event partners include Big Brothers Big Sisters, I Have A Dream Overtown, Inc., Ulltium Consulting and Young Professionals Network - Miami. This event is the first of a series of mentor recruitment efforts to promote our new campaign...

When & Where
TAKE STOCK IN CHILDREN
Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for low-income students, in efforts to end the cycle of poverty through education. We offer our students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life involving their families. Our comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school and include their transition into college.
Our program is based on the principal that given extensive support, motivation and accountability, students will strive to ensure their graduation from high school and attain a college degree. We fund our college scholarships and student services through a unique public-private fund raising model, and our mentors generously volunteer their time and skills in the mentoring of our students.
