Families are brought into the program through an annual in-take process:
- Leaders at W2C community organizations identify prospective families (in 2012, W2C community organizations are: Lions Math and Science Christian Academy, Living Faith Utied Methodist Church, Most Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe Episcopal Church, St Martin de Porres High School, St Paul’s Lutheran Church, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and Friendship Church)
- Families complete an application and have the leader from their organization sign it.
- W2C staff interviews families who have submitted an application and determines whether the student shows commitment to school and willingness to work with W2C resources to improve, and whether the parents are committed to participating in W2C programming and supporting their child
Note: To enter the program, high school students must be entering sophomore year or below, sophomores must have at least a 2.0 GPA. On rare occasions, W2C will accept a rising junior.
