To enroll in the program and be matched with a personal Advocate, students must be in the 4th-6th grades. They can fill out a student application and sign up for the program from a variety of locations. These include home, an after-school program, a public library, or a community organization. In many cases, students are referred by their teacher or after-school program coordinator because they have a desire to achieve but need extra support. In addition to completing the application found on the New Student page, students must supply a signed permission slip completed by a parent or guardian. Once they are accepted into the program, students will receive a personal password to enter their achievement activities work area.
There is no charge for students from schools where generous sponsors have made the Achievement Advocate available in their area.
