HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARS PROGRAM
The High School Scholars Program aims to provide high school students with academic support, service, and leadership experiences that help develop the important skills and confidence youth need to succeed. Our goal is to help youth successfully complete high school on time and get into college so that they can reach their future career and personal goals!
In school year 2018-2019, Project: VISION served 97 students in its core High School Scholars Program. These students come from 14 neighborhoods and 14 different high schools all over Chicago.

Community service is an integral part of positive youth development. Service learning aims to foster a sense of social responsibility in youth by building awareness, fostering positive attitudes, and providing meaningful service opportunities.
