Mission

The mission of WISE Scholars Foundation is to serve individuals and strengthen communities by promoting post-secondary education and decreasing dropout through college models of instruction and college preparatory resources including, but not limited to, academia tutorials, test-taking preparation, career-planning, technological resources, assistance with the enrollment in and the expenses of attending college and the incorporation of many sectors' such as the business sector to assist individuals with employment and other stimulating opportunities while attending school.

The purpose for which this Foundation was formed is to operate exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific, and literary purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the ?Code?) and corresponding provisions of subsequent United States Internal Revenue laws.

WISE Scholars Foundation will not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, gender, religion, or race. The Foundation will lead itself to assist any individual that seeks a post-secondary education. However, special attention will be directed towards those individuals considered 'at-risk' or 'socio-economically deprived'.

The Foundation will operate under the values that education is important and that all students can learn given the necessary resources are provided.

WISE Scholars Foundation would like others to view its organization as a non-profit entity formed exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific, and literary purposes wherein individuals can receive the appropriate post-secondary educational career training, motivation, and preparation.

Population(s) Served

WISE Scholars Foundation partners with state, government, educational, and community organizations to locate Black males in Atlanta who are or were in the foster care system; living in homeless shelters; attending alternative schools; failing in their academics; expelled from their last school; recently released from juvenile detention, jail or prison; or exhibiting behavioral issues and mentor them towards obtaining their high-school diploma or GED and going to college or a vocational/trade school.

WISE Scholars Mentors share a common ground with our target population. Although they are now college graduates or established in a career, our mentors were once prior at-risk students and products of the same circumstances that our clients currently face. WISE Scholars Mentors will serve as a pivotal role-model of how hard work, dedication, and sacrifice improved their lives.

WISE Scholars Foundation will assign a mentor to each client. Mentors will contact and follow-up with clients, either verbally or face-to-face, on a weekly basics. They will guide them through their transition from high-school graduation to college or the work force by being a liaison to assist them in all areas of the process from start to finish.

WISE Scholars Mentors will keep detailed reports and design individualized plans of action for each mentee.

Our goal is to have our mentees one day serve as mentors to future cohorts. This will give them an incentive to successfully complete their plan of action as well as esteem in giving back to their community.
