Our mission is to empower high school students to succeed in entering college and pursuing college-enabled careers. We expand students’ academic and career pathways through foundational support, enriching academic experiences, mentoring, and immersive college and career exploration.

We serve students from American Senior High School, Hialeah Senior High School, Miami Jackson Senior High School, Miami Springs Senior High School, Miami Central Senior High School, Miami Norland Senior High School, North Miami Beach Senior High School, and William H. Turner Technical Arts High School. Our goal is to increase the rate at which participants enroll in and graduate from postsecondary institutions and pursue careers aligned with their college paths. We do this through:

  • SAT/ACT test prep
  • Targeted academic interventions
  • College exploration through MyCareerShines, college tours, and major/college pathing
  • Career exploration through goal pathing, mentorship, shadowing and mentorship
