The Solution

We equip children and their parents to pursue education beyond high school, thus changing the trajectory of underserved families.

The Benefits and Impact of a Successful System

When the parent expects, inspires, and equips their child to prepare for college, this expectation becomes reality.

Good study habits will form and the thirst for knowledge will develop, especially when the communication comes from both the parents and the teacher at the same time. The program develops self-esteem and exposes them to the values of respect and responsibility. It also teaches problem solving, character building and life planning.
