I worked with this organization for 2 years and I believe its a terrific program. I actually worked with just one student for those two years, giving us the opportunity to bond and grow our relationship. Essentially, it provides students with the tools they need to get into and succeed in college. The staff spends a lot of time putting together lists of scholarships to apply for, SAT courses, and other opportunities. They also take the students on tours of nearby colleges to help them decide where/what type of school they'd like to go to, and to make college more tangible.
