Spring Initiative empowers children, youth, and families in the Northwest Mississippi Delta to overcome at-risk circumstances through educational and personal growth and transformation. We believe in the power of relationships and education and have seen how the Spring kids thrive in an environment of love, encouragement and high expectations. Seven of our high school students were accepted into Piney Woods School in August after 4 years of attending Spring. Piney Woods is a high quality college preparatory boarding school by Jackson and our first student will graduate from PWS this May. She has already been accepted into Mississippi State University and Jackson State University. Our younger students are making huge strides as it comes to increasing their reading and math skills as well. Overall, Spring students gain confidence and become excited to apply themselves in academic settings and beyond.
