Wishbone provides a scalable service for thousands of low-income students to discover, access, and afford quality after school and summer programs. Through out-of-school programs, our students pursue a passion that shifts the way they see themselves in the world. When students come alive and truly find their spark, curiosity follows. This curiosity for both learning and life leads to long-term success. Students re-define who they could become in their comunities, in the classroom, but most importantly, in life.
