The Wish List Project (TWLP) is a nonprofit community organization fostering student and family success through educational equity. We provide programming and student grants for underserved youth and low income families to access educational resources, extracurricular activities and youth development opportunities.
Research tells us that kids involved in extracurricular activities and educational programs are less likely to get involved with drugs, gangs or become school dropouts. They are more likely to do well in school. The Wish List Project enlists professionals from our community (teachers, counselors, law enforcement, case workers, coaches and other advocates) to nominate children and young adults for opportunities to lift them up from difficult circumstances.
We believe all people can be successful in school and in life when they have opportunities to pursue their interests, and the proper tools needed to achieve their goals.
