This program is to assist students who plan to attend college by providing information and assistance with college applications, scholarship opportunities, resume building, and selection of appropriate classes and degrees.
Parents are the most important partners for their youth. We seek to aid parents with their parental challenges by providing appropriate support for the ultimate goal of raising successful students. Race, income, and language are not barriers if parents are engaged and supported. Regardless of race, income, or language barriers, the benefits of parental and community involvement for students include: higher grade point averages, higher scores on standardized tests, improved school attendance, improved social skills and increases success at school.
