School on Wheels of Massachusetts will be recognized Thursday by Citizens Bank and New England Cable News as the 2014 Champion in Action for Youth Programming. The nonprofit organization was selected from 150 applicants for providing customized support services and an academic lifeline for young people affected by homelessness. It serves about 200 students a year in schools, shelters, and motels in Brockton, New Bedford, Norwell, and Stoughton with an annual budget of $500,000. “Homeless youth are invisible students in our classrooms, at risk for repeating the cycle of poverty,’’ said founder Cheryl Opper in a prepared statement. “We create a community of volunteer support that serves as an educational safety net to help children move beyond homelessness, one student at a time.” A ceremony is scheduled at 790 West Chestnut St. at 3:30 p.m.
