This workshop has taught me a lot. The people here have shed light on things that I have never thought about before.
 -9th grade Student-

I was inspired and touched by the passion the facilitators had for the students and their genuine interest in fully supporting them in making their dreams come true. What a blessing!"
9th grader's parent 

All students should be involved in a workshop like this. 
It was beautiful and educational-a wonderful experience for the kids.

It was so nice to hear experiences and profound advice given to my daughter -this has opened her eyes to college".

​With Gratitude
Our free self-empowering workshop Series for High School Students and their parents went without a hitch as a result of the collaborative spirit and efforts of many people who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get others to understand why our brand of the social aspect of college readiness and high school prep is unlike any other. 

We thank you whole-heartedly for your efforts and for believing in us enough to even try. You posted our flyer on your websites, you forwarded our emails to contacts you thought would be supportive of you if not the cause, you invited us to advisory board meetings, and at least one school college fair, you announced it in church, you welcomed our flyers at your library, you posted our information on your art organization website and gave us valuable pointers because you believed in our initiative. 

​Thank You
  Vivienne Anderson, MS
