Helping kids today so they can achieve tomorrow

Achieve Columbia believes that every kid can achieve. Achieve Columbia provides structure and support for kids beginning in middle school and continuing through high school graduation to ensure that these kids are ready for life after high school.

It's All About the Kids

Achieve Columbia is a non-profit helping to ensure that kids reach their potential in middle school, high school and beyond. Achieve Columbia focuses its efforts in three main areas:

addressing the individual needs of each participant through mentoring, tutoring, and counseling
developing a group dynamic that fosters life skills and accountability among participants
assisting in identifying and achieving post-high school goals
