This initiative helps us provide supports, resources, and activities that ensure that our participants are better prepared to meet the academic demands of high school and their post secondary education. 

Student must attend one of our partner schools: Evergreen, Fort Vancouver, or Heritage. Students must also be interested in going to college, come from families who are either low income and/or be a potential first generation college graduate (neither parent has a 4-year bachelor's degree).


In addition, students must be:
