How do we break the cycle of underachievement in a community?

The Challenge:

How to most directly effect enduring change in the neighborhood and community of Rockford where it is most needed?

An Answer:

Engage youth where most impressionable through peer exposure and family contact - their day school education.

The Urban Christian Education Fund (UCEF) has a strategy to effect this change through a well positioned vehicle. We've found a different way to do school. UCEF effectively shapes the community, youth, culture and society of the Rockford area and beyond, by providing tuition support to students at a long-time, proven, well-positioned and fully accredited Christian community school.
