Impact – Overview

As we enter the 17th year, more than 2,800 students have been impacted by our programming. Operating programs at Warren United Methodist Church (Pre-K and Kindergarten), Wesley Center A.M.E. Zion Church (1st thru 5th grade), the CARES House (Technology and Training Center) and the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center (6th through 12th grade), we have become a campus of support.

Through after school programming that includes homework assistance, and electives that include Karate, Poetry/Creative Writing, Khan Academy, and many other opportunities for cultural exposure and travel, we are increasing the capacity of our students as they pursue excellence.
