The Impact College Initiative Program of Toledo, located in Toledo, OH is an after school program with the objective of helping local area middle school students increase their awareness of their college and career options upon graduating high school. We are also dedicated to making sure that each student enrolled in our after school programming maintains at least a 75% or higher in their academics. This is accomplished by academic tutoring provided by the program director, community volunteers, and a partnership with each student’s teacher to provide the necessary support during the school day. Our goal is that by the end of 8th grade each middle school student enrolled in our program will attend an institution of higher education that will prepare them for life. Since 2012 The Impact College Initiative Program of Toledo has serviced over 50 middle school students with the objective of making sure that students are prepared for high school and are aware of their options after high school graduation. To date, Impact has helped over 60% of our students get into their first choice of private high school with more than half receiving grants and scholarships to help pay their tuition.
The Impact College Initiative Program of Toledo currently serves more than 30 low income middle school children located in Toledo, OH. A portion of students served are considered at-risk because of their reading performance. The vast majority of the population served are on track to becoming first generation high school and college graduates.
