Project Leadership partners with communities and schools to increase high school and post-secondary graduation rates.
Project Leadership’s core programming is in the area of college access, particularly to students and families who come from low-income settings. The primary tools used to achieve this objective are the state’s Twenty-first Century Scholars program, along with mentoring and other support services such as financial aid application labs.
Project Leadership recruits middle school students into the Twenty-first Century Scholars program and helps to support these Scholars by pairing them with volunteer mentors from the community. Mentors encourage students to focus on current and future success. The emphasis is on doing well in high school and continuing on to attain education and skills beyond the high school diploma.
