We'll take ownership!

We pledge to:

  • Ensure 8 students graduate college by 2020.
  • Create and support a college-going culture.
  • Prepare Students for success in college, career, citizenship, and life.
  • Make post-secondary education accessible and affordable.
  • Increase educational persistence, performance, and progress.

Project Description:

Students will be educated through workshops that highlight the importance of setting short and long term goals: (1) individual and educational, particularly in the STEM subject areas; (2) college and career goals. Students will be engaged in workshops highlighting how the STEM areas of science, technology, engineering, and math, are an integral part of most career choices. Students will be exposed to various opportunities for personal growth and involvement that will combat the barriers or obstacles that will challenge them being successful in reaching their goals. Students will be provided scholarship opportunities to make educational affordable.
