Impact Statement
Tallevast Community Center's goal is to provide community-supported programming that help students achieve academic success and improve their performance in school. We achieve this by providing supplemental academic instruction, targeted tutoring, homework assistance, test preparation, life skills training, recreation and cultural enrichment.
Needs Statement

Today more children are being raised in single-parent homes, in homes where both parents are working, or in communities with a high percent of economically disadvantage families. These circumstances often leave children without adequate supervision during out-of-school-time hours. Additionally, communities need after-school programs to be available for all children, regardless of economic status. Children without affordable out-of-school-time care and supervision are at higher risks of: academic failure, drug and alcohol

use, committing crimes or becoming crime victims, and becoming teen parents.


2014 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey reported Manatee County school students: Risk factor prevalence rates—opportunities for improvement: Middle school students reported the highest rates of risk for the Transitions and Mobility (64%) and Lack of Commitment to School (49%) scales. High school students also reported the highest rates of risk for the Transitions and Mobility (66%) and Lack of Commitment to School (51%) scales. Higher prevalence rates were reported for Getting Suspended (14.7%) and Attacking Someone with Intent to Harm (6.3%). 28.6% of students have been socially bullied, 10.9% have been physically bullied, and 6.3% have been cyber bullied. 2.1% of students have belonged to a gang, and 1.2% of high school students are currently gang members.

Background Statement
Tallevast Community Association, Inc., is a 501(C)(3) organization that has been in existence since September 1966.  In 1966, members of the community were concerned that the community's children didn't have an organized place to go after-school to socialize and learn new skills. Today, we address issues for all youth involving technology, social media, community bonding, and advanced education.

Financials Comments
Financial Comments by Organization
TCC services a low-income community and often struggle to raise funds, as few community members have the means to contribute financial support the organization.
 
 

• Establish and engage community board leadership and a system of community volunteers that will provide a resource of varied experiences and expertise while bringing a sense of ownership to the communities the organization.

Foster a culture of giving and addressing the "willingness to give" gap may address fundraising challenges in the community where many residents have very limited resources to spare.
