About Urban League Project Ready
Project Ready integrates academic support along with life skills development and college awareness. The program focuses upon three core components: 1) Academic Development, 2) Social Development and 3) College Culture and Awareness. Ultimately, Project Ready is meant to increase college access for students from under-resourced communities and also increase the college-going rates of students from these communities. Research based activities such as academic tutoring, math camps, math experiential learning activities, college tours, STEM Behind the Business tours, leadership development, and career and college enrollment and eligibility classes will be offered to students. To increase the number of youth pursuing STEM majors and STEM occupations, Project Ready will focus intently on insuring that students are exposed to a wide range of STEM careers, particularly those available in our region.
