Who We Help

Power2Change Foundation looks to support middle school youth globally.

Because a large percentage of students in areas of high-risk situations stop attending school after 8th grade, the Power2Change Foundation reaches children in the transitional middle school years from sixth through eighth grade.

The Power2Change Foundation reaches out to students who display or are subject to “ABC of Risk” characteristics.


Increased absenteeism or pattern of missed classes


Acting out, withdrawing, changing life values


Failing courses or academically underperforming

Characteristics of a Power2Change Foundation Student

  • Not being challenged in school
  • No educational expectations from family or school
  • Feelings of parental control and a wish to rebel
  • Struggling with problems at home

  • Social awkwardness or feelings of not “fitting” in
  • Poor learning conditions at school
  • Siblings or peers who have dropped out of school

The Power2Change Foundation works with established organizations that have a proven track record of success in helping middle school youth reach their full potential. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel. We want to help successful organizations impact more middle school youth.
