Student Impact’s Vision

​Student Impact will build relationships to develop student leaders who help raise up followers of Christ, create a positive and inclusive Christian atmosphere, and foster a healing community.

Serving 5,680 students this year. 2,000 more than last school year.  It’s a good problem to have…too many students and not enough space.  But it has to be addressed, and now is the time. The students need more room to grow…and we have a plan.

Food Rescue

Each week, 30 families are fed with food that is rescued from the 9 Westfield schools.  Food is sorted and delivered to the family’s doors each Friday during the school year. Drivers needed to pick up and deliver food. 

Others Ways to Support Student Impact: 

  • Meals are welcome!   Healthy meals or snacks are appreciated! 
  • Community Collaboration

It really takes a village to keep kids safe and provide them with consistent ways in which to learn and thrive.  Student Impact works with Westfield Washington Schools, The Westfield Police Department, Washington Township Trustee, The City of Westfield, Youth Assistance and much more to ensure our kids have the best chance of success.

Westfield Youth Assistance Program (WYAP) was formed in 2009 to serve as an early intervention advocate for youth ages 3-17 who are facing challenging life circumstances. We take a holistic approach to coordinate our community’s vast array of talents, services, and resources to help youth and empower parents and caregivers.

WYAP provides professional family-centered coordination of services to students and families of the Westfield Washington School District. Youth and families are often referred to our program by the schools, police, court officials, other agencies and parents with concerns about their child. WYAP services are completely confidential. 

Services are available to young people and their families, ages 3 to 17, who reside within the Westfield Washington School District. Services are voluntary, confidential and are provided at no cost to the family.

Mentoring program is provided by trusted local WYAP volunteers and are selected based on the unique needs of each child and the personal challenges they are facing.   We work with the parents/caregiver to select the mentor that will provide the most benefit to the child in providing companionship and adult role modeling. 

Food, clothing, & financial assistance is offered through coordination with our Township Trustee offices, church and community organizations, and local/state community agencies.

General counseling, anger management, and other mental health resources are provided for students through local partnerships with counselors, licensed mental health practitioners, physicians, and other community-based resources.

Educational tutoring resources are facilitated through the Westfield Washington Schools Wednesday Night Tutoring program at Westfield High School Media Center. Youth who qualify may also receive individual tutoring through WYAP volunteers.
