Who Got You Through?

You are here

America’s Promise Alliance identifies Five Promises to children that contribute to their success as an adult. Number one is “Caring Adults,” stating that relationships with a caring adult is the centerpiece of a child’s development. Based on the need to implement high-impact tutoring and mentoring, the Middle Grades Network designed “Who Got You Through?” (WGYT), a volunteer recruitment campaign focused on recruiting a “second-shift” of caring adults to help students stay on track towards long-term success. As part of WGYT, volunteers work with various Middle Grades Network partners to support students one-on-one and in groups. 

Community Partners Include:

  • IRL (In Real LIfe)
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC
  • Children First/Communities in Schools
  • Girls on the Run
  • Girl Scouts Peaks to Piedmont
  • Journeymen
  • My Daddy Taught Me That
  • My Sistah Taught Me That
  • Open Doors of Asheville
