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.
