Our Take Stock in Children program is changing students’ lives, and we need MORE amazing mentors to help us keep making a difference!
By dedicating just an hour a week to students, mentors are building lifetime bonds and setting Hillsborough County Public Schools students on the path to success.
Perla, a 2019 Jefferson High School graduate and Take Stock in Children program alum says she loved participating in our mentoring program because it helped prepare her for both college and life!
Mentors can impact students’ lives and the future of our community! With virtual mentoring options this school year, you can make a difference right from your home!

Thank you to Hillsborough County Council PTA/PTSA for reaching out to support Hillsborough Education Foundation and students & staff in Hillsborough County Public Schools and for sharing this...
As the only not for profit focused solely on strengthening public education in partnership with Hillsborough County Public Schools, every day Hillsborough Education Foundation is committed to supporting the district’s 225,000+ students and 24,000+ staff through advocacy, investment of resources and programs that empower every student to achieve both academic and personal success.
Right now, the need to support our students and teachers is greater than ever. This pandemic has exposed and exacerbated inequities for students of color and low socioeconomic status. Our teachers and district are working hard to not let the achievement gap widen for these students, but they cannot do it alone.
