Mission Statement

To provide personal and professional development for teenagers who face social and economic barriers that impact the quality of their lives

Description

POPS goal is To provide at risk high school students with the knowledge, experience and support necessary to complete high school, pursue a post-secondary experience and find gainful employment.

We have 3 main Objectives:

3. To provide college readiness workshops and access to college tours that empower students to select, apply and attend post-secondary institutions, best suited to their academic capabilities and financial means.

We do this by offering relevant curriculum workshops and experiences designed to have students gain specific knowledge, skill sets, attitudes, behaviors and values.

WE PROVIDE:

Career Exploration and Assessment
