High School Success Program

The High School Success Program is open to any high school student who is an alumnus of our Career Essentials Program and/or The Internship Program. We provide continued support and resources to these alumni through drop-in career exploration trips, college tours, and an online career assessment platform. We also offer a mentor program for a select number of our high school alumni who are paired up with Futures and Options alumni currently in college. Building relationships with college students allows our mentees to learn firsthand about the college experience and provides a supportive figure to help them explore and prepare for college.

"Now, I feel that I have a better sense of direction in terms of college and career exploration. I am going to college without a doubt. With regards to career exploration, i now know that there are many more careers available in the world, such as market analyst and sales representative, that I didn't know before.""
