Summary

The high school drop-out crisis in America is a silent epidemic. You can help. This project will support 50 at-risk teens with 1-to-1 mentoring to help them discover and achieve their full potential.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There is a high school drop-out crisis far beyond the imagination of most Americans…relegating many thousands of children to a life drugs, crime and underachievement. We urgently need to address this problem together. Our project provides 1-to-1 mentoring to high school students across the US who have been selected as highly motivated and gifted students but lacking the resources needed to succeed. This program supports students to finish high school, enter college and break the poverty cycle.

How will this project solve this problem?

Students complete a 9-month mentoring program, during which they identify their unique talents, interests and goals and careers that best match. Students also develop essential character skills such as motivation, confidence and persistence.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will support 50 at-risk students to graduate from high school and enter college. Our students will break the poverty cycle, avoid drugs and stay out of prison. Ultimately, we will help 50 young people live happy, successful lives.
