Since 2016, Student Success Stores have operated free and anonymous spaces for middle school students to shop right inside their school. The stores stock items such as food, clothes, shoes, body wash, bras and underwear, tampons, and toiletries. By providing students with the basic essentials, Student Success Stores helps ensure each child starts the school day healthy, confident and ready to learn. 


Join Besa and Student Success Stores to provide Hilltop youth with basic essentials to thrive in school. Besa volunteers will help organize a Student Success store so youth can easily access items. Tasks may include, sorting and arranging store items, building, labeling shelves, and posting signage in the store. 


  • A lead volunteer from Student Success Stores will provide orientation and training.

  • 18 is the minimum age required.
