P.E.E.P.S. High Hopes goal is to turn young scholars into global leaders. This academically-based life planning program is aimed to increase high school graduation rates, while increasing college readiness, college enrollment/completion, leadership development, and financial self-sufficiency. The program has a strong mentoring component that focuses not only on the mechanics of completing applications and navigating the ACT/SAT exam, but also goal setting, exploring careers, and succeeding once enrolled in college. Program participants are introduced to and encouraged to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math fields and Creative Art Fields
The HIGH H.O.P.E.S. Program will provide life planning training, financial literacy training, leadership training, employability training, career exploration workshops, academic readiness, writing workshops and college access seminars to students who attend high schools in the Cody Rouge & Brightmore communities. Specifically, the primary focus will be 10th grade high schools students who are short 3 or more credits. P.E.E.P.S. will provide the HIGH H.O.P.E.S. Career Exploration Summer Program during the months of June- August & HIGH H.O.P.E.S. and College Access Fall Program during the months of September- December. We also provide a Saturday 6 weeks SAT Program for high school athletes at Cody High in partnership with Communication 101 conducts Language Arts workshops, Power Org conducts Math workshops, and Ecotek conducts Science workshops.
