95% of past AWP high school student participants have either graduated or are currently attending college. To date, AWP has served nearly 500 students since its start in Pasadena in 2011. Although we have grown and changed over the years, our programs have always been rooted in the principles of holistic development, mentor ship and social justice.
Years Serving communities
It takes a village. We bring together many partners to offer a range of support and opportunities in a high-poverty environment. Through volunteers and education advocates, we created a thriving network for academic and social development.
We are the education reinforcements, providing 1 on 1 academic, nutritional, and social assistance for elementary, middle and high school students by way of Personalized Education Methods (PEM).
We go beyond academics to cultivate citizens. We cultivate students and parents alike- providing a support system for families through classes in Early Childhood Development and professional development workshops on resumes to grooming skill.
