Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Wichita Falls

Total Budget: $7,500

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: The Road to College program tutors and prepares economically disadvantaged kids for entry into college.

The Road to College Program (RTC) was developed to reach economically disadvantaged students in their early education (6th-12th gr) encouraging the students and their parents or guardians to prepare for college. While the program is in force during the entire academic year, the summer boot camp held at Midwestern State University (MWSU) serves over 100 students. The RTC summer bootcamp creates a culture of high performance and expectation, focusing on reading, mathematics, writing, speech, social skills, and leadership. The program continues to display excellent outcomes with 99% of parents and guardians saying the program should be continued. The RTC program also helps students apply for scholarships. 98% of those students awarded scholarships last year are still attending college.

The RTC summer boot camp program will take place in June 2022 at MWSU. The total budget for the program from all sources is expected to be $55,000. The estimated contribution from the SW Rotary Club of Wichita Falls is $10,778. Of this amount, $4,840 represents club member donations, $2,500 represents the DDF, and $3,438 in revenue share from the SW Rotary Flag program.

This year, SW Rotary is requesting a $2,500 district grant to help continue to fund the RTC summer bootcamp program. This will be our Rotary clubs sixth year participating in this critically important program,
