We currently sponsor Race to the Top A's Program (On hold until COVID is under control). The goal of the program is to motivate Warren County High School, Warren Early College & Warren New Tech students to reach their highest potential. Students enrolled in the program will be awarded $5.00 per A if they:
-- have good attendance
-- have good behavior in and out of school
-- have no grade below a C
In addition, we offer mentoring and life skills tips and advice during the year. We end with a picnic for the students and their families. We appreciate local businesses that have supported us to date:
We do a county-wide Coin Drive each year to raise money for the Community Center. Churches are asked to collect donations each Sunday during Black History month. The Coin Drive culminates with a Black History Month Program sponsored by the Warren County Community Center.
In past years, the Warren County Community Center has hosted the following groups or events:
- African American Read-In by the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated Rho Tau Omega Chapter
- NAACP Executive Board meetings
- Meetings by Warren County Missionary Sunday School BTU & Training Institute
We are always grateful to each individual and organization that supports the Warren County Community Center.
WARR & The Warren Record always get the word out about our programs and events.
Warrenton Furuniture Exchange has helped us with new flooring & furniture.
We couldn't do it without the continued support of our local churches, the Warren County School System, Warren County Missionary Sunday School BTU & Training Institute, John R. Hawkins Alumni, NAACP.
