Poverty can be generational, and it is difficult for youth to pull themselves up from the economic struggles that their families have had to deal with daily. West Jupiter’s low-income Limestone Creek corridor is one such area where many parents have trouble making ends meet and their children are at risk for dropping out of school. Since 1986, the nonprofit West Jupiter Community Group has offered a safe and nurturing environment for at-risk students so that they may pursue academic excellence and personal growth. At its Edna W. Runner Tutorial Center, 107 at-risk children are offered homework assistance, computer access, individual tutoring, mentoring, health education, life management skills, and the opportunity to enjoy field trips. Enrichment programs are available in science and engineering as well as music. Conflict resolution, self-esteem building, and motivational presentations are given by area professionals. By offering an educational and nurturing environment, the agency is making a positive difference in the lives of at-risk children.
