Building Bridges to the Future

Our mission is to fill in the missing resources needed to plan and prepare for life after high school.  We help students set goals, secure scholarships and internships, develop skills, and assess choices (career and college) to ultimately be successful within their unique educational and career pathway.   


Our services are made possible through grants

— free to you!
