OUR MISSION IS TO INCREASE EDUCATIONAL EQUITY BY BUILDING SCHOOL CULTURES THAT INSPIRE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND EMPOWER STUDENTS TO PURSUE EDUCATION BEYOND 12TH GRADE.
We aim to transform school culture by SUPPORTING three key areas:
PLUS Centers act as hubs of college, career, and academic resources previously unavailable to the student body. The Center offers a space where students can safely explore their interests and receive the support needed to achieve their present and post-secondary goals.
BELIEVE + ACT + INSPIRE
Emerging research has shown that an individual's mindset--the beliefs and perception of oneself in relation to learning--has substantial effects on school performance. Our team works to help students develop strong, positive mindsets about who they are and what they are capable of achieving.
Serving as daily advisors, tutors, and mentors, Fellows are at the foundation of everything we do. They supply under-resourced schools the human capital required to address the individualized post-secondary, academic, and social needs of the entire study body, every step of the way.
EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
