"Making Waves sets the gold standard in best practices for educating young people from low-income backgrounds. It is a model for raising achievement and attainment for less advantaged students that needs to be implemented in hundreds of communities nationwide."
Providing the Educational Opportunities that Change Lives
Our 2015-2016 Annual Report highlights our success and impact over the past year. What began as simply a dream with two men and one woman supporting two classes of fifth graders, has now grown to a non-profit Foundation (Making Waves Foundation), a Public Charter School in Richmond, CA (Making Waves Academy) serving 770 students and a College and Alumni Program supporting 417 students.
