WRAAP receives much needed funding

An organization aimed at educating at-risk youth, just got some much needed funding. The WRAAP program, Wilmington's Residential Adolescent Achievement Place, received $150,000 over four years from the state. The after-school program was started about a year and a half ago. Its goal is to reduce the number of unsupervised children. The program focuses on educating kids about health, language arts and culture. WRAAP Executive Director, Daryl Dockery said, “So many kids don't have the opportunities we had when we were growing up. Families are displaced. Society is going through an economical challenge as we speak right now and what we're trying to do is fill some of those gaps.” The program also provides hot meals for kids. Volunteers are fundamental to WRAAP's success. If you would like to help call 910-520-92-86.
