Studies show that parental involvement in a child's education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement, but we realize that it takes a village to raise a child. So we try to provide different opportunities for involvement.

The primary focus of Students Helping Students is to help bridge the education inequality gap that has been and still is plaguing our school systems today. Our belief is that without the appropriate amount of resources for each teacher and student of every school, a meaningful educational experience is simply not possible. Through our various programs, we hope to bring relief to as many schools as possible by recycling gently-used supplies and also providing new resources for schools that are in need.
We encourage teachers to volunteer in our program in order to help create a friendly learning environment with friendly and familiar faces. This will allow children to interact freely. Many of our children have constructive dreams which should be turned into reality. Mooresville Graded School District & Iredell-Statesville Schools recruit self-supporting teacher-volunteers.
