High School

College Bound

College Bound

College Bound helps high school-age students begin the transition to college. Participants attend programming to learn what it will take and what they will need to do to fulfill their ambitions. Students learn from college visits, mock college interviews, job shadowing, guest speakers, and from workshops on developing resumés and college essays — in addition to individual and group tutoring. The program also devotes time to explaining the financial needs for college, including outlining financial aid programs available to college bound students. 

SmART Leaders

smART Leaders is a year long program for high-school aged young people who identify as young women of color. We are dedicated to building positive self-esteem and sisterhood among all young women who participate in the program. We specifically focus on sisterhood, rediscovering our identities, and social justice education; the best part is that we do all of this through art-centered classes and workshops! Whether you are interested in painting, photography, dancing, making music, or other art-based activities we will provide you with the space to discuss topics that you are interested in learning about through artistic conversations and activities. smART Leaders is dedicated to supporting you to explore your power, your voice, your confidence, and your activism!
