Mission Statement

TeenSHARP increases students' access to competitive leadership opportunities and provides intense academic preparation so our students embrace college-level work and challenge TeenSHARP students: -learn about college admission and lead college awareness projects in their school. -join a supportive network of young changemakers. -learn about social justice issues and give back to their communities.

Description

TeenSHARP was founded in 2009 to increase underrepresented students’ access to college and develop student-leaders who are Successful, High-Achieving, and Reaching Potential (SHARP). Since then, TeenSHARP evolved into an organization that gives low-income and minority youth access to premier leadership opportunities, trains them be ambassadors of higher education in their communities, and prepares them for success at selective colleges and universities. TeenSHARP operates one site at Rutgers University’s Camden-Campus where it serves Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey students beginning in grade 6 with full-day programming each Saturday, school year-round. TeenSHARP will be launching its second site, at the University of Delaware, in the fall of 2015.
