Every January many of us pause to reflect on the year that has been and to make resolutions which will keep us focused on the year to come. We “take stock” and reflect upon who we have been and set goals for who we intend to be. This annual process for many of us is a chance to set an agenda, to establish ourselves anew, and to chart a course for our future.
While this blog has been established to be a place to learn about financial aid for all who might be interested, it also has been specifically established for those of you taking stock – Take Stock in Children, that is.
Take Stock in Children is an amazing program based in Florida which was established in 1995. From their web page, their stated purpose is to provide “…a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education [by offering] college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life.”
As I launch this blog, I want to welcome those of you who have found this place because of Take Stock in Children. I hope you will find the posts and information I share here very informative and helpful as you continue your way on your college search. As we each reflect on who we are and what we can become in the year ahead, I hope you too see a bright future ahead for you, and I hope that in some small way, what you learn here can help you on your way to future growth!
