WHAT WE DO?

In-demand careers of the future

3. CoRPORATE partnerships -
Standard Employee Engagement Events - We select at-risk underrepresented high school students, to work with our corporate partners by participating in skill based workshops that students add to their resumes to heighten their chances of getting into competitive colleges.
Diversity and Inclusion Cohort - Every year we choose a cohort of junior year, high school students to work with until their sophomore year of college.
