“Seeing the growth in confidence, in leadership, in speaking ability and the ability to take a dream, take a vision, take an idea and transform in into something real is truly breathtaking. – Josh Aronovitch
Josh Aronovitch is a long-time faculty advisor for the Washington Township, NJ Students In Action program. He has seen first hand how the program has transformed the participants. Washington Township takes pride and passion in serving their community in the most innovative ways they can imagine. They look forward to helping more people in their community and beyond in the years to come.
Students In Action continues to produce positive results across the country, particularly in low-income schools. In 2015, 38% more low income students from nearly 500 schools across the nation participated in SIA. The real power in SIA is our ability to measure dual outcomes, both the community impact and impact on student leaders trained. SIA students report more than 3,000,000 hours of service, which carries a $63 million value. In a survey of SIA faculty advisors, 99% of at-risk students involved graduated high school, with 81% receiving college scholarships.
Help us build the Students In Action program in more communities across the country!
