What is Champions of Wayne?
Champions of Wayne, a 501c3 non-profit operating at Wayne Memorial and Tinkham Alternative High Schools, is an innovative and unique educational program that involves adult mentoring, customized academic goals, and financial rewards. Champions was initiated in 2009 as a start-up program involving 50 students and a handful of mentors. Program popularity has exploded in recent years, as 550 students and 130 mentors participated this past semester.
Participation in Champions has changed the lives of many Wayne students. While students at risk of dropping out increases, the percentage of students completing 9th grade has doubled since 2009 and one WMHS grad begins at Harvard University this fall.
