About this organization






Providing the student community with opportunities for achievement, enrichment and service in preparation for personal and academic success.


The Wade Edwards Foundation offers after school academic support, post-secondary planning and summer technology and enrichment programs to Wake County high school students. Programming includes access to the computer lab, positive youth development workshops and community service programs. The foundation fills a critical gap for high school students with few opportunities available to them in the community. Our core services include tutoring and academic assistance, post-secondary planning, ACT/SAT test prep, work-force development skill building, and opportunities for community service. In addition, our hi-tech teens program offers monthly workshops on STEM subjects. During the 2018-2019 school year the Wade Edwards Foundation served over 800 students from 19 different high schools.
