Mission Statement

Urban League Project Ready is a set of evidence-based standards plus practical tools specially designed for the purpose of getting African American, Latinx, other urban youth ready for college, work, and life. It helps 6th -12th-grade students in Greenville, Greenwood, & Spartanburg make academic progress, benefit from cultural enrichment opportunities and develop important skills, attitudes, and aptitudes that will aid in their transition from high school and position them for post-secondary success.

Participants receive academic, social, and cultural supports and opportunities designed to develop "readiness": having the information and perspective necessary for success without needing remediation in college or career.
