WHAT IS THE HIGH ACHIEVERS PROGRAM?
The High Achievers Program is an afterschool youth development program designed to help young people reach their full potential, and have a solid base for learning and growing. By participating in diverse and comprehensive educational programming, leadership development/enrichment activities that include a summer employment focused youth apprenticeship program, youth are encouraged to become effective and participatory future leaders.
During the academic year, funding supports students from grades nine through twelve, with weekly leadership enrichment programming 4 to 5 days per week.
The mission of the High Achievers Program exists to prepare future leaders. The Program believes that every young person has the potential to become a community leader. By participating in high-quality educational programming and enrichment activities, youth are encouraged to become effective and participatory future leaders.
The program fosters leadership development through exposure to STEAM based activities, enrichment field trips, college tours and summer apprenticeship based learning initiatives thus preparing well-rounded individuals.
We see every youth in the program as "at promise" and none "at risk." We see the worth of every child and recognize every parent as a competent provider. We aim to help youth discover new talents and competencies. The High Achievers Program provides services that every parent would want for his/her child but sometimes cannot afford to provide.
